— The 2nd Annual Hollywood Dash, held on July 23, raised nearly $13,000 for the agencies that provide support and services to individuals with intellectual disabilities.
Runners, walkers and rollers had a new course this year, as the event changed locations to the Streets of St. Charles. During and after the race, there was a resource fair, music provided by Floyd Glass, a bubble bus, Knights of Columbus clowns, and a red carpet photo stop sponsored by StreetScape Magazine for the attendees to enjoy.
Dashers and Supporting Role attendees got out of the heat at AMC Streets of St. Charles 8 to watch “Ice Age: Collision Course” or they enjoyed a cold drink from participating restaurants and bars.
Eight agencies, including Community Living, participated in the Hollywood Dash. The event was created to raise funds and awareness for agencies with similar goals and missions all centered on making a positive impact on people with intellectual disabilities. The money raised from this event will help fund therapy, support services and education.
— Community Living’s Swing4Kids Charity Golf Classic took place August 5. This year, the venue changed locations to The Links at Dardenne in O’Fallon.
The rain didn’t stop the event from happening, and luckily the clouds cleared just in time for the golfers to hit the links. With the support of our friends in the community, the event grossed over $12,000, which supports programs and services to help enrich the lives of people with disabilities so they can achieve their highest potential.
