A night filled with food, music, dancing and fun is just what the Eagles Special Olympics team of Fillmore County experienced. On Friday, July 26 the Eagles held their annual fundraiser at the Harmony, Minn. Community Center, and a large crowd of people came to show their support.

A silent auction with many gift certificates and baskets took place that helped raise funds for the team’s activities throughout the year. Eagles fan shirts were even on sale at the event. If you were hungry, you couldn’t go wrong by getting a BBQ, brat or hot dog along with chips, pop or water served by the Harmony Lion’s Club.

As to not disappoint those who have a sweet tooth the fundraiser had dessert covered too. Ice cream sundaes sporting a variety of toppings were available, or some people chose to go with a classic root beer float.

The showcase part of the night was a concert by Elvis tribute artist Brad Boice. Unlike many of the traditional Brad Boice shows, Eagle team members were just as much stars of the show as Boice himself. Boice and his wife, JulAnn, are regulars at the fundraiser, making annual appearances. “We tell everyone every year that this show is our favorite,” said JulAnn Boice during the show’s intermission.

The money collected at Friday’s event helps fund the Eagles’ activities that they do throughout the year. Some of them include bowling, basketball and track events. “We use the money to send athletes to competitions and pay for hotel stays for our athletes, staff, parents, and caregivers,” explained Gina Ommen-Flaby, the Special Olympics head of delegation. “Our coaches and our volunteers are what make things go.”

Roughly half of the Eagles team was able to attend the night’s event, and there’s no doubt that they had a great time and appreciated the support of the crowd.
