Chick-Fil-A Greater Lexington To Host Hometown Heroes Night

Meet Local Special Olympics Athletes In Hamburg, Frankfort, Georgetown And Richmond

Hometown HeroesChick-fil-A Restaurants throughout central Kentucky will host Special Olympics Hometown Heroes Night on Thursday, April 27. The Hometown Heroes events will be held at Chick-fil-A locations in Frankfort, Georgetown and Richmond and at the Hamburg location in Lexington from 5-7 pm. The events will give people the opportunity to meet local Special Olympics athletes, receive autographs and learn more about the Special Olympics program.

Also, Chick-fil-A is once again making Hometown Heroes Night a Spirit Night for Special Olympics Kentucky, so if you mention Special Olympics Kentucky when you order, 15% of your purchase will support local Special Olympics programs.

This is the fourth year for the Special Olympics Hometown Heroes promotion, and the third where the program has incorporated multiple Chick-fil-A locations.

In addition to helping connect Special Olympics programs to their local communities, the Hometown Heroes nights will promote the Special Olympics Kentucky State Summer Games, which will take place June 2-4 at Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond. More than 1,400 Special Olympics athletes from across Kentucky will participate in those Games. Chick-fil-A is in its fifth year as a sponsor of the State Summer Games and in its fourth as the title sponsor of the Chick-fil-A Olympic Town area at the Games. Chick-fil-A Olympic Town is an interactive festival filled with food, games and crafts, where athletes can go between their events or after their events are completed. Chick-fil-A also provides lunches for all of the athletes and volunteers at the Games on the Saturday of competition.
