Thanks in part to their generosity, thousands of Rhode Islanders with intellectual disabilities will have the opportunity to participate in Special Olympics programming at no cost. Special Olympics Rhode Island is proud to be a member of the SquadLocker team!" - Ed Pacheco, President and CEO of Special Olympics Rhode Island.

As the marquis dinner-level sponsor for the tournament again this year, SquadLocker was proud to support this community event and the Special Olympics Rhode Island.  The game was a scramble. 2 SquadLocker teams of 4 teed off at each hole for the best shot.
