We are having a restaurant fundraiser on Saturday, October 20th to benefit Best Buddies Kentucky at Moe's on Harrodsburg Rd. Best Buddies is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that works to create one-to-one friendships, integrated employment, and leadership opportunities for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). Best Buddies has chapters in middle schools, high schools, and universities across the state of Kentucky.
As a former member and Chapter President at the University of Kentucky, I know just how crucial an organization like Best Buddies is. Often times, individuals with disabilities have trouble making friends and socializing throughout middle school, high school, and beyond. Best Buddies strives to eliminate those issues by pairing students with and without disabilities in one-to-one friendships. These pairs participate in monthly activities in various settings to socialize and hang out just like any other group of friends. This interaction facilitates real, genuine relationships and more often than not, life-long friendships for all parties involved.
I am involved in Best Buddies Kentucky's annual fundraising competition called the Champion of the Year campaign. The money from this Moe's fundraiser will go directly to my campaign and towards the creation and facilitation of friendships for individuals with and without disabilities across the state of Kentucky!
