Dear Guests,

Thank you for being with us today to gather with friends, play golf and support dedicated and
determined athletes of all abilities.

This Special Olympics Connecticut Golf Tournament at Foxwoods Resort Casino has become an annual
tradition, thanks to the outstanding volunteers who organize the event and each of you who
participates. Events like this golf tournament help ensure that every individual with an intellectual
disability who wants to play sports – has the opportunity to join a team.

Because of friends like you, individuals with intellectual disabilities get the chance to play sports with
their peers through our Unified Sports® programs in schools and communities. They also have
opportunities to get moving and make friends as members of our Unified Sports® Fitness Club.

Additionally, our athletes benefit from our Healthy Athletes program. Through Healthy Athletes, we
provide health screenings from medical practitioners and life-changing information about nutrition,
hydration and living a healthy lifestyle to our athletes so they can be competitive and stay well. We
provide these screenings at our major sporting events, so athletes who might not otherwise have access to healthcare can receive the attention and care they need.

We all want to be a part of something – a golf foursome, a team, the game. We all want to feel and do
our best. Through your participation in this golf tournament and your generosity, you’re helping to put
one more player on the ball field, on the basketball court – and on the golf course. You’re helping one
more person gain skills, friends, a healthier lifestyle – and feel included and accepted.

Enjoy your day and thanks for supporting Special Olympics
!


Sincerely,
 
Beau Doherty
Special Olympics Connecticut President
