Special Olympics

The Celebrity Winterfest is a weekend event that provides opportunities for internal company team building, client development and friendly competition between participating companies all while lending support to the Special Olympics Northern California.  Hacienda's Peregrine Systems is the events main sponsor which will begin on March 8th and conclude March 10th.  Join in the fun with another Hacienda company, Cingular Wireless, and show your companies support for the Special Olympics.  Visit the event online at: www.celebritywinterfest.com.

Corporate Race Teams
Each team will have seven slots they can fill with employees, clients or vendors and their guests.  These seven people will then be randomly paired with a Special Olympics Intermediate Alpine Ski Athlete and a television or film celebrity.  This nine member team then competes against the other teams in a fun filled giant slalom race at Kirkwood Ski Resort. Your seven guests can enjoy all the various Winterfest events and can even enjoy the slopes at Kirkwood while the racers compete.  Follow this link to get more information on becoming a corporate race team: www.celebritywinterfest.com/corporate.htm.

Senior Executive Event
After the corporate teams have raced, the Senior Executive Race begins.  Join the battle to be the fastest Senior Executive down the slopes. Details about the Senior Executive Event can be found at: www.celebritywinterfest.com/srexec_race.htm.

A live auction will be one of the other fun events happening throughout the weekend.  Donations are being accepted for this auction and volunteers are being sought to assist.  Details on participation in this event as well as other Special Olympics Northern California events are available through the contact below.
