This week’s Hometown Hero, presented by Hendrick Southpoint, features Ellie and Ila Lanigan!

This week, we’re honoring Ellie and Ila for their volunteering efforts with Orange County Special Olympics, community service, and enthusiastic involvement in making the lives of others better! From helping out coaches to working directly with athletes, Ellie and Ila are both a positive influence on their community.
