2015 Special Olympics Southern Arizona Breakfast With Champions

        Yesterday the 3rd annual Southern Arizona Breakfast With Champions was held at the Westin La Paloma Resort & Spa in Tucson, Arizona.
Representing the Knights (photo attached) were five (5) members of the Saint Pius X Council (10762), Arizona State Council PWID Chairman Ken Gallagher, and myself (I was taking the pictures).
There were just under 700 people in attendance.

This was an awesome event  with many very good motivational speakers (i.e. Jessica Cox, Pima County Sheriff Chris Nanos, and more).
The University of Arizona Cheerleaders, and Wilbur (UofA's mascot) were also present to cheer on the event.
Members of Team USA Softball, who won the Gold Medal at the 2015 World Games, were present and received awards, presented by the UofA softball head coach (Mike Candrea).

Our Knights of Columbus logo (also attached) was up on the sponsor's slide that was being projected on two (2) big screens.
It was also in the event program on the sponsor's page. Ken Gallagher has an extra copy for our Worthy State Deputy.

This is one event that, if you have the time, is worth driving to Tucson for.

Vivat Jesus!!!
