It was great to be back in the swing of things at this year’s annual golf tournament benefiting Special Olympics of Williamson County! Special Olympics continues to be the leading voice for athletes with intellectual disabilities, and for nearly a decade, we have proudly hosted this event. Shining a spotlight on the good work SOWC does for our community goes back to the heart of our mission, which is creating a place where our people and our communities can thrive.
“All of our Special Olympics athletes, families, and coaches, thank Lee Company for providing community opportunities for people with intellectual disabilities to train and participate in athletic activities, to be a part of a team, and to grow physically and socially through sports. The partnership between Lee Company and SOWC has benefited 4,000 athletes over the past ten years,” said Joanne Drumright, Area Director. “In addition to participation in local events and activities, many athletes train and compete in state, regional, national, and world game competitions. Thank you to Lee Company, their vendors, partners, and friends, for providing joy to so many.”

Back by popular demand
Hole #17 at the Governors Club in Brentwood continued to be the most popular hole on the course. We had four athletes on hand to putt first for each team: Eric Wilson, Matthew Drumright, Connor Bosse, and Kara Hawkins. Their enthusiasm was contagious as they smiled and shared stories of the opportunities they’ve had thanks to Special Olympics. If you’ve never had the opportunity to attend a Special Olympics event, we highly recommend it!
