Special Olympics at Villanova University – Saturday November 5, 2016

SpecialOlympics

This year the Special Olympics will be held the weekend of November 4-6, 2016. Debbie Arbuckle will be signing up MCPA for a “cheer team” of 10 volunteers for Saturday November 5, 2016. The time frame will be determined by the Villanova student volunteers, but we are committing to a 2 hour window of volunteering.  These athletes appreciate having people on the sidelines encouraging their team and accomplishments, win or lose!

Please contact Debbie at darbuckle@kaplaw.com to join our team!

Remember, “Cheering is volunteering.”
