District 15 Special Olympics will present “A Night for the Blue Jays” on Saturday, February 4, at Brandi’s Banquets, 1170 E. Dundee Road in Palatine.

The evening will feature dinner, dancing, an open bar, and a live DJ, as well as raffles and silent auctions. Cocktails and appetizers will be served at 6 p.m. and dinner will be served at 7 p.m. Tickets cost $60 per person and must be purchased no later than Tuesday, January 24.

Proceeds from the benefit will support District 15’s Special Olympics team, the Blue Jays, which competes in eight sports throughout the year—bowling, basketball, cheerleading, soccer, softball, snowshoeing, swimming, and track and field. These teams offer District 15 students with intellectual disabilities, cognitive delays, and/or significant learning or vocational problems a chance to be part of a team through an extracurricular program designed specifically for them. They help students learn how to make friends and play with others, as well as gain a better sense of self while developing social and self-help skills.

For more information, contact Terri Storino, coach of the District 15 Special Olympics team, at storinot@ccsd15.net or by calling Marion Jordan School at 847-963-5564.
