Let's Make An Impact Together

Last year, your extraordinary support during our inaugural event helped us raise an outstanding $11,000. This amount had a significant impact: The Bristol Special Olympics used their share to include all their athletes in bowling, welcome new members, and equip them with new uniforms. Additionally, the Agape House Homeless Outreach utilized their funds to make a meaningful difference in the lives of the homeless.

This year, as we focus solely on the Bristol Special Olympics, we've set an ambitious goal of $50,000 to fund an entire year of programs, aiming to significantly enhance the experiences and opportunities for these incredible athletes.
