Join Best Buddies for their Friendship Jam at the Blue Note Hawaii
Sponsored by Best Buddies International
Best Buddies International is a nonprofit founded in 1989 by Anthony K. Shriver to establish a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment, leadership development, and inclusive living for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).
The event takes place November 14th in Hawai’i. The Champion of the Year Friendship Jam will celebrate the efforts of eight philanthropic leaders from Hawai’i communities while enjoying a concert featuring some of Hawai’i’s most famous performers to raise funds for Best Buddies programs. The concert will also feature a silent and live auction, heavy appetizers, beer, wine and soft beverages, speeches from two Best Buddies Ambassadors and the crowning of the Grand Champion of the Year team. This year’s Champion of the Year Friendship Jam will raise funds to grow and expand our School Friendship, Ambassadors (leadership development) and Citizens (adult friendship)for individuals with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities. It will also aid in bringing Best Buddies Jobs (supported employment) to Hawai’i.
Champion of the Year is an annual fundraising competition featuring a select group of individuals, professionals and prominent community leaders. These philanthropic trailblazers compete to raise the most funds for Best Buddies and earn the ultimate title of Champion of the Year. By reaching out to the community to raise funds and spread awareness, candidates champion for Best Buddies, our mission, and people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
If you secure a table at the 2021 Champion of the Year Friendship Jam, you will be part of Best Buddies’ goal to expand more opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment, leadership development, and inclusive living for individuals with IDD living in Hawai’i.
