The West Central Missouri Vintage Auto Club donated $1,000 to the Missouri Special Olympics program Thursday afternoon.

Commander Larry Ward, who is also the head men's basketball coach, accepted the check & explained how the money will be used:

“It's to support our local athletic programs right here in the Sedalia area,” Ward said. “Here locally, we have basketball and we travel. We won the state championship and they also participate in bowling statewide.”
