Chick-Fil-A To Host Hometown Heroes Night

Meet Local Special Olympics Hometown Heroes In Frankfort, Georgetown And Richmond

Hometown HeroesChick-fil-A Restaurants in Frankfort, Georgetown and Richmond will host Special Olympics Hometown Heroes Night on Thursday, April 26. The Hometown Heroes events will be held 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.

This is the fifth year for the Special Olympics Hometown Heroes promotion, and the fourth 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 1-3 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.
