Every May, Debbie will make 100 free throws EVERY hour for 24 hours (totaling 2,400 makes), all the while raising money for Special Olympics. Over the last three years, Team Antonelli has raised more than $415,000 and have a goal of $200,000 in donations this year alone.
Debbie isn't only an advocate for Special Olympics, she's a Special Olympics mom herself. Her middle son, Frankie, was her inspiration for taking on this challenge, which has expanded from South Carolina to six states benefitting Special Olympics programs in Minnesota, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Texas as well.
This year, the event will begin at noon EST on Saturday, May 14, with the entire event being livestreamed on both YouTube and Facebook.
As we've done each of the past two years, Dr. Dish will be giving away a Dr. Dish Home shooting machine to one special donor chosen at random. Check out last year's winner in the video below!
We're inspired by Debbie's commitment to helping such a great cause and are once again proud to be part of an amazing event in 2022!
