Roosevelt – Ingersoll Live
The Roosevelt Best Buddies Chapter is off to a successful start to the school year! The student leaders spent a recent Saturday evening promoting the Best Buddies mission at Ingersoll Live, an annual street festival that features more than 30 vendor booths as well as other entertainment and food.
The Roosevelt Best Buddies booth gave passersby an opportunity to sign their Spread the Word to End the Word banner as well as a chance at some free tattoos and candy! Leaders capitalized on the foot traffic by sharing information about Best Buddies, and they enjoyed visiting with old and new supporters alike!
Hope Stone, the chapter’s Vice President, had this to say about the evening: “After I received some positive feedback from Ingersoll Live, I realized how much of an impact Best Buddies has on the community and how proud I am to be a part of such an amazing club.” Roosevelt is definitely a chapter to be watching for the 2015-2016 school year!
