Texas trial attorneys Amber and Steve Mostyn attend the grand opening of the Christi Stanley Building, Special Olympic Texas’ new headquarters.
On December 4th, Amber and Steve Mostyn, founders of the Glenda Jean Mostyn and Joe E. Moreno Educational Foundation (Mostyn Moreno Foundation), attended the grand opening of The Christi Stanley Building, the new headquarters for Special Olympic Texas’ (SOTX). The 20,000 square foot, state-of-the-art sports facility is located in Austin, Texas and named after Amber Mostyn’s mother, Christi Stanley.
“My mother had a special place in her heart for those with special needs,” said Amber Mostyn. “In fact, one of her first jobs was at the Fort Worth State School. I cannot think of a better way to honor my mother than to contribute to Special Olympics Texas.”
In 2014, the Mostyns donated $2 million towards the completion of the $7.1 million needed to complete the construction of the facility. The building has high tech training rooms for coaches, athletes, volunteers, and medical professionals as well as housing facilities for staff, including conference rooms and space for public and private events. The storage space allowed SOTX to get rid of the many storage spaces it rented and house all its event needs on site.
The decision to construct a permanent building allows SOTX to build financial equity in the land and building, while being able to maximize the impact of all donations on its ability to support program services. The Christi Stanley Building was designed with athletes, families and coaches in mind and proudly reflects SOTX’s heritage.
