There have been plenty of smiles over the years from the athletes of Special Olympics Door County. The agency boasts two basketball teams and a track squad with students from across southern Door County. Sturgeon Bay teacher and Special Olympics coach Shannon Wautier says even she was surprised by the level of competition available to their athletes.
Valmy Happy Hour recently raised $6,000 for Special Olympics Door County through its annual ladder golf tournament, raffle, and silent auction. Wautier says the funds are crucial to help cover uniforms and travel costs for their athletes.
