Washington State Special Olympics Will Return 6/8/2011
It’s now official…the Washington State Special Olympics Winter Games are returning to North Central Washington. The organization’s executive board took formal action on a proposed long-term agreement over the weekend. The Memorandum of Understanding outlines a five-year partnership between both Special Olympics and a consortium of business, hotel, government, non-profit and individual supporters of the Games. It provides for the Games to remain in North Central Washington while the local area will cover the approximately $30,000 in facility costs.

Included in the agreement is a commitment by the local facilities to maintain 2011 pricing and donation levels; and contracted Games hotels are to maintain 2011 pricing levels through 2013 and go up no more than 5% for 2014-16.
