Special Olympics of the Black Hills is hosting a new type of fundraiser in its effort to continue events for local athletes.
The organization is hosting a tailgate party on Friday night featuring the local band DD and the Pharaohs, plus a silent action, and food.
Jack Lynass is President of Special Olympics in Rapid City. He says it’s important for charities to find new and creative ways to fundraise.
He says the money raised in this event supports 125 high school age athletes who now take part in the program.
