Best Buddies Champion of the Year Galas
Best Buddies in Virginia & DC will be hosting our annual Homecoming: Two Parties One Purpose Gala with our students and supporters! This event raises critical funds for Best Buddies programs throughout Virginia and Washington, DC. The event will be held at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, DC.
This exciting evening will combine our Champions of Inclusion competition that celebrates emerging leaders throughout the Virginia & Washington, DC community and a Homecoming Dance for our Best Buddies students.
Champion of the Year is an annual fundraising competition organized by our staff, Event Committee, and Advisory Board, featuring a select group of individuals, professionals, and community leaders. These philanthropic trailblazers compete to raise the most funds for Best Buddies and earn the ultimate title of Champion of the Year.
By reaching out to the community to raise funds and spread awareness, candidates champion for Best Buddies, our mission, and people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Following the fundraising campaign, Best Buddies will recognize the candidate who has raised the largest amount in donations at the annual Champion of the Year Gala. By definition, that candidate will have surpassed all rivals in the competition; and therefore, becomes a champion. He or she will aptly receive the title of Champion of the Year!
