Spirit of the Season Gala
On Friday, November 13th I went to San Francisco and volunteered my evening at the Spirit of the Season Gala. This is a huge fundraising event for the Special Olympic organization. I was happy to help at the registration table and worked really hard to sell as many raffles tickets as possible to help enhance the funds towards my cause. I spent time with some participants in the Special Olympics program and even got the chance to play a game of wee with them. They were so lovely all dressed up and had a great time at their event. Everyone there was in such good spirit and gave so much to this organization. It made me happy to see people in society coming together to help continue this organization run for those who need it. I made the right choice in choosing Special Olympics as my platform, I love the participants.
