The Club’s mission is to better the lives of children and adults with special needs, and we raise money to support nonprofits, school programs, and individuals through camp sponsorship’s, donations and any other way we can help.
About a year after we formed, the city of Acworth coordinated the building of a special needs ball field (Horizon Field), a playground for children with special needs and a concession stand. This was the first one in Cobb County and we were fortunate to be a strong contributor. We helped raise the first $20,000 of the 1.2 million needed to build such a park with the special surface. We physically helped build the playground as well.
We also do hands on projects supporting the community, in particular the special needs community. We volunteer as “buddies” with the Kennesaw baseball league for special needs at Horizon Field, we will be volunteering for Special Olympics, we have collected gifts and supported the Jerry Worthan Christmas Program, provided sponsorship dollars for the Georgia Ballet’s Dance Ability Program, and supported a child needing a wheel chair lift through the Fragile Kids Foundation.
