The Allen Special Olympics Delegation (Allen Delegation) is now accepting sponsorships for their 22nd Annual “Special Angels Among Us” Benefit Auction. This event is the primary fundraiser for the Allen Delegation and is scheduled for Feb. 15, 2020, at the Marriott Courtyard in Allen, 210 E. Stacy Road.
Sponsorship support from local businesses enable year-round sports training, athletic competition and social opportunities to more than 230 athletes, ages eight through adulthood, in Allen, Fairview and surrounding areas.
Volunteers serve as coaches and administer the program, and funds are used to purchase equipment and uniforms, utilize training facilities, and ensure athlete attendance at competitions.
The proceeds from the 21st Annual Auction enabled athletes to successfully participate in local, area, and state Special Olympics Texas (SOTX) competitions. Allen Delegation was able to send a total of 254 athletes, Unified Partners, coaches and chaperones to six statewide competitions and cover transportation, hotel accommodations, and meals.
There are three levels of sponsorship opportunities available: gold, silver and bronze. Each level offers the sponsor with an ad in the program, easel, and slideshow along with a table sign and a determined number of dinner tickets based on the level of sponsorship.
Additional support can be place via program ad, by donating a live or silent auction item, or monetary donation. For more information on sponsorship opportunities contact co-chair Donna Sheets at firstname.lastname@example.org or 214-673-1760.
