A Night in Hollywood

On April 18th, a Special Olympics fundraising event will be held at Greenville High School to spotlight the Special Olympians as the stars they are with a black tie themed dinner and show. A Night in Hollywood will showcase the Special Olympics participants by opening their artistic abilities to the public through a talent show and an art auction. Guests will be provided Hollywood themed refreshments throughout the duration of the talent show.

You will have many opportunities to give back to Special Olympics fund throughout A Night In Hollywood with business donations, ticket prices, fun family games and much more. Since this will be the first ever fundraising event made specifically for the Darke County Special Olympics, we are aiming to double their annual donation by raising $7,000. We are looking to get our community connected to the Special Olympics in a way that they have never experience before by putting on A Night in Hollywood. Usually, the Special Olympic participants are limited to athletics.

We are aware that the Special Olympians are extremely talented in many ways! So, we would like to give them the opportunity to show off their own unique talents to our community. Our goal is to have all eyes on our Special Olympics participants so they may feel like the stars they are.

If you would like to be a guest at A Night in Hollywood, pre-sale tickets will be available at all Greenville National Bank branches, $10 for student tickets and $15 dollars for adults. You may also  purchase a table for $200. If you are interested in making a financial donation, please make checks payable to Supply Chain Management at 100 Greenwave Way, Greenville OH 45331.

For further information, contact Dara Buchy at or (937) 564-8211. The doors will open at 5:30 that night. We would love to get as many members of our community as possible involved to share this very special night with us. Hope to see you there!
