Buddy Program Awards

The Buddy Program is grateful for the support of so many people in this community.  Everyone who helps us is invaluable — we could not do what we do without you!  While it is difficult to individually recognize all of those who make significant contributions, each year there are a few individuals who do distinguish themselves by going above and beyond.  The Buddy Program celebrates these individuals each year with awards in different categories.

Hero Established in 2000, the Hero is awarded to those without whom our programs would not be as strong and successful as they are
Angel Established in 2009, the Angel is given to outstanding individuals who have significantly advanced the Buddy Program’s fundraising and development efforts
Golden Lemon Established in 2013, the Golden Lemon is given to individuals who have gone above and beyond in ensuring the success of Lemonade Day
Golden Carabiner Established in 2014, the Golden Carabiner is awarded to individuals who have been instrumental in furthering our LEAD Programs

Thank you to all of our past recipients!
