The Whitlock Company is a Silver Level sponsor of the 2010 Missouri Special Olympics, which will be held May 26-28 at Missouri State University. As a Silver Level Sponsor, the company will be featured at the Honored Guest Reception, host a booth in the Healthy Athlete Park and Victory Village and present awards to the host team.
The entire staff of The Whitlock Company is involved in raising funds for the Special Olympics. Fundraising events will include $5 Jeans Days (held on every other Friday between from March until the event in May), and a raffle for a Kindle Reader from Amazon. One hundred percent of proceeds from these fundraisers will benefit the Special Olympics.
“We are excited as a company to have this opportunity to be a part of the Special Olympics. We’ve found some fun ways to raise money for this great organization and we’re proud to be able to give back to our community,” said Managing Partner David Myers.
The Special Olympics of Missouri provides year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with mental disabilities, giving them the opportunity to develop physical fitness and share their gifts with others.
