Former Georgia Bulldog football star and current ESPN analyst David Pollack headlines tomorrow night’s fundraiser for the Watkinsville-based Extra Special People: the event is at the Classic Center. Extra Special People works with children with developmental disabilities in Athens and across northeast Georgia.
From the ESP Facebook page…
Each year, Extra Special People brings together members of the community with the children and families it serves for one special night: Big Hearts. It's an opportunity to shine a spotlight on the abilities of some of our community's most big-hearted individuals, while leaving their disabilities in the wings.
Join ESP as our kids and adults of all abilities shine on stage at The Classic Center! Big Hearts is a pageant-style show where the participants of ESP dress in ballgowns and tuxedos to share their talents alongside a theatre production. This one-of-a-kind night shines a light on the incredible abilities of our participants while also raising needed funds to host summer camp and Miracle League!
ESP creates opportunities for people with disabilities and their families to engage, connect, and thrive through 8 weeks of summer camp, 19 after school/afternoon enrichment programs, and ongoing family support.
This year's theme is Big Hearts in Bloom and we hope you will join us in celebrating our participants of all abilities and supporting ESP's Miracle League!
