Back to Best Buddies Day – Long Island
Finding the momentum after the holidays can be difficult, but our Long Island student leaders rallied together on January 29th at the Microsoft Store in Garden City for our Back to Best Buddies Night. The students arrived excited to regroup post-holiday and ready to learn how to lead their chapters for the remainder of the school year.
While we enjoyed pizza and snacks, we reviewed our exciting Long Island events ahead – the Best Buddies Friendship Ball on March 5th and the Long Island Friendship Walk on May 21st! Our students are anxious to hit the dance floor for our Hawaiian Luau themed Friendship Ball and prepared to recruit and spread awareness for our annual Friendship Walk.
Thank you, Microsoft, for helping make our Back to Best Buddies Night a huge success! And a special thanks to Jerelyn Zontini, Microsoft’s Community Development and Events Manager, for firmly believing in the Best Buddies mission and providing exciting opportunities for our participants at the Microsoft Store.
