Enriching Lives Gala

Thank you, PEI!
Enriching Lives Gala

We invited you to Meet the Determined, and you did just that, and more! Your support helps our athletes to take on any challenge, in sport, and in life.

Thanks to your support, we raised over $250,000 at the  2019 Enriching Lives Gala. These funds will stay in PEI, supporting over 600 Special Olympics athletes, from playground to podium.

On behalf of the Special Olympics family, a huge thanks to sponsors, table buyers, auction donors and guests. You’ve ensured that Islanders with an intellectual disability will experience the transformative power of sport!
