thank you to everyone who attended OUR ANNUAL
BAND TOGETHER FUNDRAISER
Presented by Northwestern Medicine
The event was a hit. Every Silent Auction and Drop-In item had bids on them and many lucky attendees went home with their desired item.
This popular event supports Special Olympics sports offered through Opportunity House, Inc. – a program that provides competitive team sports to over 70 athletes of all ages with intellectual disabilities. Team uniforms, equipment, and travel expenses, and other vital areas are all assisted by funds raised at Band Together. Sports offered include basketball, soccer, bocce, golf, softball, bowling, and volleyball. Teamwork, improved physical health, social skills and self-esteem are just a few of the positive results of participation in Special Olympics through Opportunity House Athletics.
The funds raised from this event will also support our Recreation Department, which offers the individuals we serve many different activities to choose from. Examples include Yoga, arts & crafts, bowling, movie nights, movin' and groovin' dance parties, art classes, and MORE!
