The Houston Chapter of Best Buddies International met at the beautiful home of Becca Cason Thrash on Wednesday night, September 30. Best Buddies International is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to establishing a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Best Buddies was founded in 1989 by Anthony Kennedy Shriver and the organization is a vibrant, international organization that has grown from one original chapter to more than 1,400 college, high school and middle school campuses across the country and internationally.
The event held Wednesday was to promote their mission, raise awareness of those who are in need and to generate much needed funds for the remainder of the fiscal year. The silent auction items donated were dazzling and would be great stocking stuffers for anyone on a Christmas wish list! Mink stoles, jewel encrusted handbags, designer purses and mega-trips were among the most popular items. The dinner was four star and the honorees, Chase and Diana Untermeyer, were grateful for the recognition.
