Volunteer: Bocce Referee at the Kentucky Special Olympics

  • Eastern Kentucky University Richmond, KY (map)

Here's a great volunteer opportunity from our friends at the Louisville Italian-American Association


  • Each year, the Louisville Italian-American Association (IAA) supports the Kentucky Special Olympics (KSO) by sponsoring the “Lou Perry Bocce Tournament,” which is named in honor of longtime IAA board member Lou “Mr. Bocce” Perry.
  • The IAA is seeking volunteers to serve as bocce referees on Saturday, June 3, 2017 for a tournament at the Special Olympics at Eastern Kentucky University.   
  • Volunteers do not need to be experienced bocce players.  To help volunteers become familiar with the basic rules of bocce, the IAA will be scheduling a brief training session one evening prior to the event.
  • In addition, to help cover the cost of travel, the IAA will be providing up to $100.00 per car traveling to Eastern Kentucky University.  If you are interested in serving as a volunteer, please see the details of the event presented below.
