Special Olympics fundraiser sucessful

Posted by wlpo on August 3, 2012

A set of Blackhawks tickets and lawn furniture for your kids were some of the items sold during an auction that raised money for the local chapter of the Special Olympics.

More than $40,000 was raised last night at the Special Olympics’ Gold Medal Event Dinner and Auction.

An estimated 200 people were there.  It was sponsored by the Miller Group Charitable Trust.

The Starved Rock Chapter of the Special Olympics includes more than 500 athletes.  Money from this event will pay for their programs.
