Founding Spirits joined hundreds of happy partygoers on Friday night for one of the greater Washington, D.C. area’s best and biggest annual fundraisers, the Best Buddies Prom.
Now in its sixth year, the gala was as festive and fun as ever as this year and was planned as two parties in one. Held at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in downtown DC, local area students of all abilities danced the night away with their Best Buddies, while attending adults enjoyed delicious food and complimentary beverages, including our award-winning Founding Spirits Vodka, which we donated to the event.
The evening’s festivities were hosted by our good friend and Best Buddies advocate, DC’s radio and TV celebrity Tommy McFly. And the region’s famed DJ Neekola had everyone moving to her fantastic beats. It was a very lively and successful evening for this life-changing organization.
The Best Buddies Prom has raised over one million dollars for the Capital Region chapter alone. Best Buddies was founded in 1989 and is the world’s largest non-profit organization dedicated to ending the social, physical, and economic isolation of the 200 million people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Having grown to nearly 2,900 chapters worldwide, working to support and positively impact the lives of over 1.25 million people, Best Buddies engages participants in all of our 50 states, in 53 countries, and in six continents around the world.
