You are Cordially Invited to the Orange Host Town

First and Probably Last Annual Black Tie Non-Event



The Orange Host Town committeeis raising funds to host 200 Special Olympic athletes and coaches from Team Canada and Team Senegal as they prepare for the 2015 Special Olympic World Games. Donations will be used to provide meals, cultural and recreational activities, transportation and lodging during their 3-day visit to Orange before competing in the Games.

The Special Olympics World Games are coming to Los Angeles in July!  7,000 athletes and 3,000 coaches from 170 countries will show the real meaning of joy, courage and determination at the Games scheduled for July 25 - August 2 in the City of Los Angeles. This is the largest event to come to the Los Angeles area since the 1984 Summer Olympics, and the City of Orange is honored to be one of 100 Host Towns for these very special athletes.

By NOT attending our gala, you will save tux rental, dress purchase, babysitting, hair styling, gas/parking and several hours of your valuable time. That’s a minimum savings of $500, so grab a pen, write a check, curl up with a good book and enjoy a quiet evening at home.

Please consider making a suggested $100 minimum donation to the Orange Host Town program. Donors will be entered into a drawing for a barbecue for twenty people at your home, cooked on their own traveling grill, by none other than our very own City of Orange Fire Department firefighters.These make great kids Birthday Parties or a fun evening for you and your friends.  They often sell at charity auctions for up to $1,500.00. (You must live within the Orange City Limits or host your party at a friend’s home in the City of Orange.)

Orange Fire Department Barbecue Drawing – Suggested Donation

$25 for 1 ticket or $100 for 10 tickets. For every additional gift of $100, you will receive another 10 tickets.  We estimate that it will cost the Orange Host Town committee $200 an athlete to provide 3-days of meals, lodging and activities during their host town experience.

Please make checks payable to Kiwanis of Orange – Host Town Orange.EIN# 463478057 and send to P. O. Box 1551, Orange CA 92856
