The Intellectual Disabilities or "Tootsie Roll" Fund Drive is one of the most recognizable activities that the Knights of Columbus do. The funds generated from this drive are used to support local programs which help people with special learning needs.

The White Sox have dedicated Saturday, July 28 to the Illinois Knights of Columbus and their 50 year partnership with Special Olympics Illinois. On this special night, we invite K of C members, their family, and friends the opportunity to purchase specially priced tickets to see the White Sox take on the Blue Jays.
