SPARC and The Special Olympics

This summer the City of South Pasadena is one of several host cities for the 2015 Special Olympics held here in Los Angeles. The organizing committee has asked SPARC to assist in this project by asking for volunteers to work with the athletes ( from Paraguay and Morocco) on a special art project led by South Pasadena Artist Val Trimarchi.  In addition we’ve included a list of art supplies and a description for the project. The project will take place on July 23rd at Garfield Park. We are also asking if anyone is able to contribute to or donate art supplies need (from the list).

The Organizing Committee is on a short timeframe to get this project organized and ready for the athletes, so if any of our SPARC members are interested in participating, please contact me ASAP and I will forward your information and level of participation to the project organizers.

This is a great opportunity for SPARC and our members to be part of a wonderful community effort to support these special Olympic Athletes.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.  Please contact me at the email address below.

Thank you in advance for your willingness to participate.
-Howard Spector, Director
