Best Buddies Citizens Gather at Brooklyn Americana Music Festival
On September 26th, Best Buddies Citizens participants from across NYC gathered in Brooklyn Bridge Park for the Brooklyn Americana Music Festival, which presented original and traditional country, folk, roots, blues, old time and bluegrass artists.
Best Buddies participants from the Bloomberg and Nielsen Citizens chapters and our individualized community based program joined in for a picnic lunch, live music, and a generous serving of sunshine. The gathering was held in honor of Eunice Kennedy Shriver Day, an annual celebration of her life and a global call to action for people to live in a more unified society.
By committing acts of inclusion, acceptance and unity for and with people with intellectual disabilities, we will continue to build on Eunice Kennedy Shriver’s legacy.
Thank you to all who helped make this day special for all involved!
