The Fayette County Special Olympics held their big Dime a Dog night on Sept. 10. With a great crowd on hand and perfect weather, the Dragons ultimately lost the game to the Guns and Hoses team by a score of 22-10.

Close to 600 hot dogs were sold along with snow cones, lemonade shake ups and t-shirts. Several people, including members from the local Altrusa Club, donated baked goods for a bake sale which was also held during the evening. This event was very successful as there were roughly 15 volunteers from the community and over $2,400 raised for Special Olympics!

The Fayette County Board of Developmental Disabilities and the Dragons would like to thank the community volunteers for their support of Special Olympics and their help to make the Dime a Dog game a huge success.
