We had some serious star power last Sunday night in Georgetown.  We must thank terrific and kind celebrities from the WWE, NFL and more who presented during our Made to Matter fundraiser this past Sunday in Georgetown, TX.  Through heartfelt presentations from key players in the world of athletics and media, this event had an impact on Special Olympic Texas athletes, while also celebrating the Special Olympics Texas 50-year anniversary.  

Mark Calaway (AKA “The Undertaker”), Michele McCool, Two-time WWE Women’s Champion, two-time WWE Divas Champion, renowned running back Jamaal Charles, Jana Perry Henry and more all joined us for this star-studded event to benefit our athletes. 

With the support of the public, sponsors, and the power of all of Made to Matter's special guests, Special Olympics Texas can continue to transform lives through the joy of sport, each and every day. Special Olympics Texas empowers athletes to shatter stereotypes and exceed their personal bests on the playing field and in life.
