Special Olympics is the world’s largest sports organization for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, providing year-round training and competitions to 5.7 million athletes and Unified Sports partners in 172 countries.
I was honored to be a part of a charity gala benefitting Special Olympics with over 6000 athletes in Miami alone, and honoring their achievements.
After a good diner and nights sleep, morning coffee and jog.

Soundcheck- received a beautiful flower arrangement-as you know I love flowers and candles.
Camera Ready. Keeping it classy-
The custom graffiti biker jacket adds a touch of edge to the classic black dress.
Red Carpet. Miami Special Olympics Gala, Miami.
With PR and event organizer Eric Sanders.
Such a beautiful event and it was nice to get everyone up and dancing to cap off the evening and awards ceremony. Congratulations to all of the Special Olympians who were honored and in general to all the children and young adults going for their dreams no matter what and to the parents, family and friends who support them.
An exciting blend of grand prix racing, and various other family activities related to race car driving and a splash of music added in – that was the Detroit Grand Prix. The day started out cloudy with some rain sprinkles but by the time we hit the stage at 1 PM. the sun was shining brightly.
Here are a few photo’s. A few video snippets to come.
