Special Olympics Ontario - Barrie

Get your clubs ready!

Dear Friends of Special Olympics, 

Barrie Special Olympics is hosting their 4th Annual Charity Golf Tournament, Saturday June 25, 2016 at Innisbrook Golf Course. 

Special Olympics is dedicated to enriching the lives of people with intellectual disabilities through sport. The Barrie council offers 300 athletes the opportunity to participate in 14 sports, thanks to the dedication of great volunteers and members of the community like yourself. 

I invite you and your business to donate an item or gift certificate to our silent auction or prize table. Donations will be acknowledged in a flyer set at every table and displayed the day of the event.  You might also consider sponsoring a hole at the tournament thus having your business sign displayed at the hole.  

We would love for you to join us and enter a team in our tournament.  This could be a great incentive for your employees, “golfing with the boss day”. 

By donating and supporting our fundraiser, you will be helping Special Olympians right here in our community.  

I will follow up in a few days to discuss a possible donation, hole sponsorship and tax receipts.  Thank you for your consideration in supporting our request.

With Appreciation
Thanks are extended to two local service clubs who have specifically provided funding this year towards the 16 athletes heading to the National Winter Games in Corner Brook, Newfoundland. 
Rotary Club of Barrie has sponsored two athletes: thank you!

Barrie Civitan Club has provided support towards snowshoe athlete Jade: thank you!
These contributions go a long way in supporting not only these 16 athletes, but all programs that provide training and competition opportunities to the more than 200 registered athletes in Barrie.

Snowshoeing Fun!
January 31st, 2016 the Snow Cats took to the trails for a Sunday morning trek through sunnidale park. Joined by CTV Barrie, the athletes showed off their skills and in the true nature of Special Olympics had an amazing time!

Special thanks to BTTE!
The Brothers to the End motorcycle club came on board with SOO-Barrie in 2014, to show their support for our athletes. Their efforts saw funds raised, that resulted in a new community-wide uniform purchase. Athletes from all sports look great in their new jackets.

Staples Fundraising
Our local athletes were pleased to stop in and provide the face for the "Share a Dream" campaign at both Staples stores in Barrie. Thanks to Staples for the ongoing support!
