Special Olympics Iowa is the charity of choice at this year’s Des Moines Home and Garden Show February 8-11 at the Iowa Events Center in Downtown Des Moines. There are several ways the show plans to give back to SOIA.


SOIA athletes will be on hand to help throughout the event. An athlete will also get to decorate one of the mailboxes in the show’s annual “You Got Mail” display. Local celebrities and tastemakers will also take a plain old mailbox and turn it into a masterpiece. There will be a silent auction, so attendees could walk away with a one-of-a-kind mailbox. All proceeds will go towards SOIA.


On Media will be doing a promotion at the show on Friday for “Hero Day.” They plan to bring in The Justice Corps of Iowa (Super Heroes). Attendees can purchase a photo opp with them, with all proceeds from the photos going to Special Olympics.


If you buy tickets for the Home and Garden show and use the promo code OLYMPICS, $1 of your ticket price will be donated to SOIA.
