A silent auction at the Dec. 4 grand reopening of Whitewater Park Apartments, with a contribution from Kennedy Wilson Multifamily Investments, raised $5,000 for Special Olympics Idaho. Here, Whitewater Park Apartments staff present the check to representatives from Special Olympics Idaho.
“In the past year, we struggled with a financial crisis due to a drop in funding and a rise in athlete participation. This donation could not come at a better time,” said Laurie La Follette, CEO of Special Olympics Idaho. “Our budget is solely based on donations so every dollar counts.” The organization will now be able to sponsor five athletes, including equipment and coaching for an entire year, she said.
