MICDS Holiday Tournament Supports Special Olympics Missouri

“There weren’t many dry eyes in the house by the end of the game,” said Assistant Athletic Director Marshall Newman as he described a longstanding tradition of service at MICDS – just one of the many ways the School is engaged in the community.

In between games on Semifinal Night, MICDS hosted a 15-minute exhibition game with players from West County Special Olympics. This is the 18th year that MICDS has hosted the game with all proceeds from the tournament being donated to Special Olympics Missouri. The night of the tournament resulted in over $500 in cash raised, and overall the tournament ended up raising thousands more for the organization.

Semifinal Night is described as one of the greatest nights of the year by Marshall Newman, who also provided commentary during the game. It’s a night when the MICDS community and other St. Louis area schools come together to get behind a great cause.
