The Special Olympics mission is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports, providing opportunities for individuals to develop fitness, demonstrate courage, and experience joy with friends, family, and the community.

The Rotary Club of Annapolis was founded in 1921 and has a long history of community service. 2020 marks the 17th iteration of the Gala which raises funds for one community nonprofit each year. Past recipients have included Boys & Girls Club, Seeds for Success, Samaritan House, and the YWCA.
