Please join us Thursday, October 27th to welcome Jessica Kury from the Special Olympics of Pennsylvania as she speaks with us about " Fundraising as a Project & Lessons Learned ".
Jessica Kury works for Special Olympics PA as an event manager and organizes fundraising events for the non-profit. She works out of the Pittsburgh office and is responsible for the Northern, Western and Central PA areas events and fundraising opportunities. She has been with Special Olympics PA for the past year now & working in the non-profit sector for 10 years. Jessica holds her Bachelor’s Degree in Communications and Marketing from Bowling Green State University in Ohio.
Janine, a life-long resident of Erie, started in Special Olympics around age 9 by invitation from her school. Her first sport was track and field. Not being limited to just one sport with Special Olympics, Janine also started bowling, equestrian, and swimming. Sports are also year round so Janine joined cross-country skiing too. Currently, Janine trains and competes in bocce, downhill skiing, swimming, and new for her this year, powerlifting. Janine has competed for the last 20 years for team Erie City locally, regionally, and at the state level in multiple sports.
Fast forward to Fall 2015 when Janine, along with her mother Marcia as her mentor, attended Global Messenger training in Harrisburg through Special Olympics of Pennsylvania's Athlete Leadership University. She jumped at the opportunity to share with others her experience and passion for Special Olympics. This will be Janine's eleventh speaking engagement. She can also be heard on the radio with Mike Ruzzi news anchor from EireNewsNow giving life to this year's Polar Plunge PSA.
A Chapter Update report and Office Nominations will be held immediately following the presentation.
