Best Buddies in Pittsburgh is pleased to announce the return of TasteBuds!
TasteBuds is a unique tasting event that features talented chefs from around the Greater Pittsburgh area serving signature dishes and demonstrating the power of friendship. Chefs are paired with individuals with intellectual & developmental disabilities (IDD), who serve as sous-chefs for the evening. Guests will sample an array of culinary delights and enjoy drinks at the open bar.
Over the past few years, our local office shifted temporarily to a virtual Champion of the Year gala, a philanthropic competition uniting inclusion leaders in our community. Superseding Champion of the Year is TasteBuds! With a return to in-person events, TasteBuds is back, and we could not forget about our Champions of Inclusion!
We are thrilled to announce that 5 Champions will be selected for 2022. At the completion of this 10-week campaign, we will crown our Champion of the Year at TasteBuds.
The evening will also include live entertainment and opportunities to bid on fabulous auction items, all in support of our Friendship & Leadership Programs for individuals with IDD.
Find new flavors. Meet new friends! Should you have any questions, please contact SamanthaCivitate@bestbuddies.org.
