Best Buddies International is a nonprofit organization dedicated to establishing a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment, leadership development, and inclusive living for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). Here at the University of Memphis, we help spread our message of love and inclusion to all by creating safe environments and events for all to come and be together. That is why for the first time ever, the University of Memphis chapter of Best Buddies is planning to host a West TN Best Buddies Formal to spark inclusion, change, and joy once more. This collaborative formal will bridge the gap in West TN for all students alike, especially those who missed out on prom and formals due to Covid-19.
Any funds donated to Best Buddies Formal will be used to help continue on our mission and stay as faithful to our founder as we are to your donations. This project is now closer to fruition thanks to your contribution, we hope to see you in March 2023 for Best Buddies Formal!
With Love and Inclusion,
Best Buddies UofM
