The supply chains in place require final orders approximately one-month in advance of the event. To conserve funds raised to support Special Olympics Kentucky athletes, we order shirts and sized based on projected attendance at that time. We are grateful for all participants. For a nonprofit, it is advisable to be conservative and avoid excess inventory of shirts following the event.
