"Fun Night" Fundraiser

Chippewa Falls Senior High School gym
This is our 29th year and is the major fundraiser for the Chippewa County Adult Special Olympics organization. They sell raffle tickets that can be purchased prior to the game from any Special Olympics athlete or at the game, with the drawings held at half time.

There is no charge to attend the basketball game.

Each year we come up with a theme for the game; this year it is an “All American Red White and Blue” theme.
We also have an obstacle course at half time for the kids that attend so that they can interact with the officers.
