The PLUS Southeast Chapter, in conjunction with Future PLUS, hosted a networking event on June 18 at Sweetwater Brewing Company in Atlanta. Over 120 attendees spent the afternoon networking, taking brewery tours (including the tasting room) and enjoying true Southern BBQ!
Thanks to all who made this event a runaway success!
The PLUS Midwest Chapter selected the Special Olympics Illinois as their Chapter Charity grant recipient. As part of the PLUS Foundation’s 2015 Chapter Charity program, a volunteer event took place on June 9th. Volunteers cheered the runners to the finish line and participated by running in the race. A check for $3,500 benefiting Special Olympics Illinois was presented to representatives from the organization.
Special Olympics Illinois offers adults and children with intellectual disabilities an opportunity to participate in year-round Olympic-type sports competition, providing opportunities for physical fitness, courage and joy.

The PLUS Texas Chapter hosted a Top Golf fundraising event on May 12. Held at Top Golf’s Austin location, more than 20 industry professionals broke out the clubs and, by the looks of it, had a great time networking and golfing.
The event raised almost $2,000 for PLUS Foundation. Thank you to all who attended, and to the event sponsors for their support.
