Special Olympics Gala Dinner

Media personality Andy Paschalidis with Ron Hoenig MP
It was a pleasure last night to attend the Special Olympics Gala Dinner with Shadow Minister for Citizenship and Communities and Member for Fairfield Guy Zangari, Member for Cabramatta Nick Lalich, and a number of my liberal parliamentary colleagues.

The Special Olympics just do wonderful work by changing the lives of children and adults with intellectual disability by providing year-round sports training and athletic competition in a number of Olympic-type sports.

As the Special Olympics write; "Perceptions and attitudes matter. That's why Special Olympics are the leading voice in raising awareness of the needs and abilities of people with an intellectual disability."

That to everyone for being so generous. Thanks to my parliamentary colleagues for their support, and thanks to the generosity of so many sponsors, which included NSW Labor.
