Virtual Friendship Ball Recap
March 18th – Best Buddies Month Virtual Dance
We decided to take our Friendship Ball virtual this year and hosted a Best Buddies Month-themed dance on Zoom! The chapter at Riverdale High School helped to put together the entire event and the final result was AMAZING! They had a main “dance floor” with DJ Owen, a Riverdale student, and three breakout rooms for anyone who wanted to step away from the dancing for a moment. These included a virtual game room, arts and crafts room, and a virtual photo booth just like at a real dance! We even had guest hosts Jeannie and Amina, Best Buddies’ own Zumba queens, take over halfway through the evening for a few Zumba routines. There were over 170 students from across NY state in attendance and a good time was had by all! Thanks, Riverdale High!
