Due to the global coronavirus pandemic and out of an abundance of caution for our Special Olympics community, the Silicon Valley Bocce Bash has been rescheduled from Thursday, May 7, 2020, to Thursday, Oct. 8, 2020.
Along with the Bocce Bash, all of our Special Olympics competitions, events and activities are suspended through June 30, 2020. While the decisions were made to best protect our athletes and supporters, this is heartbreaking news for everyone in our Special Olympics family – especially the athletes who look forward to these events all year.
We want to show our athletes that we’re all still here for them! No one should feel isolated during this time, especially people with intellectual disabilities, who are often more vulnerable. Will you show your support by joining us at the rescheduled event on October 8 and/or making a contribution today?
Join the Santa Clara County community and Special Olympics Northern California (SONC) for the annual Silicon Valley Bocce Bash! It’ll be an evening of food, fun, and bocce! Designed for both novice and seasoned Bocce players, the evening features a double elimination tournament with timed rounds judged by professional referees. Teams will enjoy mixing and mingling with Special Olympics athletes who will compete alongside them, and have time to sip craft wine and beer, delight in Italian cuisine and pour over exclusive auction items between matches. Following the tournament, a brief awards ceremony names and honors the tournament winner. All funds raised from the event support SONC’s mission to: enrich the lives of children and adults with intellectual disabilities through sports, education and athlete health.
