2015 | Special Olympics

As I reflect over the past ten years of being in business, I am content and happy to look back over all of the different organizations we have been able to donate to.  As an occupational therapist, I lean towards organizations that assist individuals with lifelong disabilities.  I wanted to go back to that this year so chose the Special Olympics as this year’s fundraiser.  For more information you can visit their website somo.org.  Working in the schools with our youth that have special needs, I always enjoy hearing them talk about their Special Olympics experiences and coming back to school with ribbons and big smiles!  The joy captured on photos is wonderful to see.  It is often experiences that shape us.  What better way to boost self-confidence and enjoyment in life than to experience personal success as an athlete.

Thank you to everyone that made the day a success.  It was extra joyful for me personally to see so many Chariots customers come to celebrate with us.  Comin’ Up Empty kept the mood joyful with their music, those that reserved a bottle or two of Jack Daniels Single Barrel Select enjoyed a taste of their much anticipated whiskey, Jack Daniels swag was handed out and silent auction and raffle items helped raise money.  We were blessed with beautiful riding weather, so many folks made us a special stop on their journey and trophies were handed out a tad early so those staying all day could get a nice ride in before sunset!  It has been a rainy year in Lincoln County so the dry day was truly a blessing.  Thanks again for making the day special!

You can see photos from the celebration and lots of other events in our Photo Gallery.
