By admin - Posted on 14 May 2011

Thanks to the many Midwest Olympians and Paralympians who supported World Sport Chicago as it hosted their scholarship athletes, along with top local volleyball players at North Avenue Beach on Olympic Day, June 23. Another shout out to World Sport Chicago, which hosted the Midwest Chapter at a dinner held at The Chicago Firehouse Restaurant the same evening. Special thanks to World Sport Chicago President Bill Scherr (wrestling, 1988), Executive Director Scott Myers and Clara Petrisor for all the organization.
