On May 24, Community Connections, Inc. participated in the Sky Ute Casino Resort's and Southern Ute Tribe's 19th Money Booth. CCI was among a handful of area not-for-profit organizations to benefit this year. Matt Payne, our Adult Services Program Director, raced the clock to capture over $700 in 45 seconds.
On behalf of CCI's board, staff and clients, we'd like to thank the casino and tribe for their ongoing support of this event and Community Connections mission to create opportunities for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities to lead healthy and fulfilling lives within our Southwest Colorado communities.
Money booth funds will support community integration activities for adults with intellectual disabilities in La Plata County, including the opportunity for several adult clients to join a bowling league at the casino.
