Support those with disabilities while mingling with local sports figures

Support those with disabilities while mingling with local sports figures at Recreation Unlimited's Celebrity Sports Gala on Thursday, June 20. Recreation Unlimited, an organization that has been serving people with health issues in the community since 1958, hosts the gala each year to raise money for its camp programs and scholarships.

The evening benefit takes place at the Ohio Union, and guests will hear from Ohio State Director of Athletics Gene Smith. Former OSU basketball player Rick Smith and even mascot Brutus Buckeye will also be in attendance. It begins at 6:30 p.m., and the evening includes entertainment and auctions. Tickets are $100, and can be purchased online at RecreationUnlimited.org.
