Night of Heroes

Ed Abrams returns as emcee for the 2013 Night of Heroes. Abrams has been part of the KYW Newsradio news team since 1979 — the most listened-to morning team in Philadelphia radio. His son is a Special Olympics athlete in Pennsylvania.

The annual Night of Heroes, sponsored by DOW, celebrates the significant contributions of people and organizations both from the past year and over a longer period of time.

Held each fall, the evening's awards program and reception is an opportunity for the Special Olympics family to come together and celebrate the organization's successes and recognize those who made it possible.

Tickets are $25, $10 for Special Olympics athletes. To obtain tickets call 302-831-4653 or email

The 2013 event is Thursday, October 10, and is SOLD OUT.
