Description (Brief)
Invitation to a Bush White House Dinner in 2001 is white with the gold presidential seal in the center. The inside reads, "The President and Mrs. Laura Bush welcome you to the White House for a dinner celebrating the spirit of Special Olympics."
From its beginnings as Camp Shriver in Eunice Kennedy Shriver’s backyard, to the first international games in 1968, Special Olympics has been about giving people with intellectual disabilities the opportunity to participate in sport. This participation builds confidence, provides emotional support and offers social opportunities for the athletes and their families. With state chapters and a global presence through its World Games, “Special Olympics is the largest sports organization for people with intellectual disabilities with 5 million athletes in 170 countries worldwide.”
