On Monday morning, a dream became a reality for Special Olympics Texas.

The Chapter and Area 13 staff reported to work in their brand new office spaces at the newly constructed Christi Stanley Building, located at 1804 Rutherford Lane in Austin. 

Thanks to the efficient and hard working Graebel Moving crew, all items from the former SOTX headquarter office we're packed up and delivered to the new building on Saturday. When staff came in for their first day on Monday, they set up their computers, phones and unpacked their personal boxes before getting right to work in their new digs.

This milestone never would have come to fruition without YOU - the generous donors. Thank you for all of your support! We can't wait for you to come visit us at our new home, The Christi Stanley Building!

Special thanks to Hotels for Hope for sending the cookie cake (pictured below) as a 'housewarming gift' to our staff!
