JERSEY AUCTION RAISES $6,800 FOR BROOME-TIOGA SPECIAL OLYMPICS

The Binghamton Senators’ Special Olympics jersey auction, held on Saturday, April 7 following the Senators game against Worcester, raised $6,800 for the Broome-Tioga chapter of the Special Olympics. 

The auction raised 17 percent of the $40,000 annual operating budget for the Broome-Tioga chapter of the Special Olympics. 

The one-of-a-kind jerseys were designed by Bailey Simons, an 11th-grader at Vestal High School.  Simons’ design was chosen from more than 300 entries from 17 secondary school in the Broome-Tioga area. 

Simons, along with John Crosby, Area Coordinator for Broome-Tioga Special Olympics, were each presented with an honorary jersey in a pre-game ceremony. 

Special Olympics is an international nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering individuals with intellectual disabilities to become physically fit, productive and respected members of society through sports training and competition.  

Special Olympics offers children and adults with intellectual disabilities year-round training and competition in 30 Olympic-type summer and winter sports. There is no charge to participate in Special Olympics.
