Albany-- With a few sips, you could help hundreds of Special Olympians go for the gold.
Local organizers need to raise $50,000 for the 2007 State Fall Games here in Albany. So far they've raised about $30,000. A special beer and wine tasting event this Friday night will bring more money in.
Organizers say it's important to help give people with disabilities a chance to shine.
"This is such a wonderful, wonderful event. I can't say enough about it. These are great athletes. We will have hopefully about 1,500 athletes come to town along with their coaches and all and the money we raise, we actually fund their whole weekend here," said Fall Games Fundraising Chair Diane Urick-Slomka.
The beer and wine tasting will be held at Stonebridge Country Club from 6 to 9 Friday. Tickets are $25. To purchase tickets for the event you can stop by The Clay Spot on Dawson Road or call 229-894-9914.
To volunteer for the games, contact the Albany Department of Recreations and Parks.
