Project Description

The Best Buddies Friendship Ball is a prom-like event available for all of our program participants to attend free of charge. Our buddies with and without Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities look forward to this event all year and it is a chance for them to experience one of the major events of high school - just like a general education student.

A meal and dessert are served to all students, a photographer takes professional photos of the students, a DJ plays and the students dance the night away. Awards are given out to celebrate the lasting bonds of friendship created through Best Buddies. Decorations reflect the theme that our student leaders vote on at the beginning of the school year.
