From co-hosts Ana Almeida and Matt Walsh’s antics at the podium to scene-stealing athletes (yes, you Martin Fudge!) to a two-time winner of the Chairperson’s award Ed McHugh’s auction talents, it was an evening to remember!

Our keynote family, the Sharpes, shared tTheSharpesOnStagehe importance of supporting Special Olympics and the valuable benefits to our athletes’ entire lives and that of their families and communities.
