Evening of Opportunity is a fun filled cocktail reception featuring a range of entertainment, annual awards recognition, and a lively auction, all while overlooking unmatched views of Boston Harbor. Join supporters, partners, business leaders, and Best Buddies participants in supporting our mission to empower the special abilities of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. All of the funds raised through this event will help grow the lives of people with IDD in Massachusetts and Rhode Island by forming meaningful friendships with their peers, securing successful jobs, living independently, improving public speaking, self-advocacy and communication skills, and feeling fully included in society.
Best Buddies is the world’s largest organization dedicated to ending the social, physical and economic isolation of the 200 million people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). We accomplish this through four major programs: One-to-One Friendships, Integrated Employment, Leadership Development, and Inclusive Living. Please visit www.bestbuddies.org/mari to learn more about how Best Buddies is having an impact in your community.
