A World of Difference is a dinner and auction fundraiser that supports the athletes of Special Olympics Southern California. The event is one of the largest auctions in Long Beach with more than 300 items. Auction items include unique experience items, travel packages, culinary and wine, sporting event tickets, signed memorabilia, theater tickets and much more.
At this year's event we will honor Toyota and Randy Gordon, President and CEO of the Long Beach Area Chamber of Commerce.
Along with the auction, attendees will enjoy a formal dinner, live entertainment, and inspiring stories about Special Olympic athletes.
Benefiting Special Olympics Southern California Athletes
Special Olympics changes lives by providing year-round sports training and competition for more than 14,000 people with intellectual disabilities in Southern California.
Your support helps fund Special Olympics programs in your community. Every dollar raised not only provides equipment, uniforms, and training for our athletes, but also gives them empowerment, joy, and improved health.
Special Olympics athletes are five times more likely to hold a job than the general population of people with intellectual disabilities. They are also more physically fit and live happier, healthier, and longer lives.
If you would like to support Special Olympics athletes, please make a tax-deductible donation.
