Extra Special People is located in Watkinsville. Their mission is to help intellectually disabled children through a summer camp and other programs. They recently added an after school program and a yoga class for the kids. Through their work these kids are shown that they are able to do anything other kids can do. Extra Special People creates a loving environment where these children can be challenged to make the most of their lives. At the gala 25th anniversary of ESP at the Oconee Civic Center, the $1000 check was presented to Executive Director Laura Whitaker.

The Knights raised this money though fundraising activities done throughout the year. Our major fundraisers were our golf tournament held in the spring, concession stand sales at UGA home football games, pancake breakfasts, and Lenten fish suppers. The Knights work hard with no pay in order to give this money away.
