Attended by sponsors, supporters, athletes, and Special Olympics Florida team members, the reception was a testament to the power of inclusion and empowerment. Special Olympics Florida used the occasion to honor sponsors whose unwavering commitment has been instrumental to the organization's success.
Special Olympics Florida athletes were the true stars of the evening, showcasing their accomplishments and sharing stories of their resilience. Flemings provided the perfect setting for the gathering.

Olympics Florida presented Local Hero Awards to Paul Whitney of Royal
Caribbean and to Andrew Savysky and his son, AJ Savysky. Andrew is an
executive officer of Structured Settlement Capital, and AJ is a student
at Miami Country Day. The Local Hero Awards recognize those individuals
