The donations were raised by the Carmeuse team at this year’s “Dunk the Manager” Fundraiser. Area 1 Special Olympics Michigan’s mission is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.
The Organization is supported by funding from Michigan citizens and businesses. Fundraising is an integral part of Area 1 Special Olympics. Money raised is used to pay for the sports practices, registration fees, transportation, lodging, food, equipment and tournament trips.
Each year the Carmeuse Port Inland team has a cookout with games and activities for employees. This year’s event featured a Dunk the Manager fundraiser. Employees donated to the Area 1 Special Olympics Michigan by purchasing ball throws in an attempt to raise money for the funding of the organization while having some fun and dunking Carmeuse managers in a water tank. The tank was donated by Desjardens Excavating.
Port Inland Site Operations Manager Mike Cirino presented a donation to Area 1 Special Olympics representatives David and Sheila Marks.
“Our employees were happy to help with fundraising for such a great local cause. The Area 1 Special Olympics Michigan is an organization that we want to continue to support,” said Shena Meffer of Carmeuse Port Inland.
