I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank all the Johns Creek businesses and residents who supported our Special Olympics Georgia fundraisers.
In the beginning of the year we set our goal at $20,000. Thanks to you, we surpassed that goal by quite a bit, raising $34,000 for the non-profit which supports the intellectually disabled of Georgia.
My family and I went down Emory University to help present awards for the State Summer Games. The joy and excitement of the athletes and the opportunity to share such a special moment in their lives will stay with me forever. Special thanks go to the following:
