Special Olympics Fundraiser

special-olympicsMaking dreams come true for our athletes at Have Dreams!  Families, friends and members of the community continue to open up their hearts and generously contribute their time and talent to support Have Dreams in unique ways. Have Dreams parents Christine and Patrick McDonough are  two among the many Have Dreams families who have kindly donated their time by hosting  their own fundraising event benefiting Have Dreams.  On May 18, 2013, Chris and Pat hosted their third Annual Special Olympics fundraiser, held at the Irish Heritage Center in Chicago.  This successful event  raised over $7,000 for the Have Dreams Special Olympics Track & Field and Aquatics teams.  Guests were entertained by the Chancey Brothers, a local Irish band in Chicago.  Over the past three years, the fundraiser has raised $40,000 to help the Special Olympic athletes buy new uniforms, pay for the practice facilities and cover the costs of the meets, among other things.  We are so grateful to the McDonoughs and all of their friends and family for providing their ongoing support for this wonderful event benefiting Have Dreams.
