Save the Date for the Bash for the Buddies on July 6, 2024

Thank you for joining us!

Wow, what a night it was at our Bash for the Buddies - more than just a fundraiser, a celebration. The 80's diner theme took us on a nostalgia-filled journey, and we couldn't have asked for a more energetic and supportive crowd.

 

We're still on cloud nine from the amazing time we had celebrating Gail and Lenny “Boogie” Weinglass and their incredible milestones and iconic journey.

 

We want to extend a massive shout-out and heartfelt thanks to everyone who joined us and supported this spectacular event.

The Buddy Program celebrates 50 Years

2023 marks the 50th anniversary of the Buddy Program and we couldn’t be more excited to celebrate with you at the 24th annual Bash for the Buddies!

The Bash is a celebration of the youth, families and volunteer Big Buddies throughout the Roaring Fork Valley who we serve through our mentoring programs. The event typically raises over one-third of our annual operating budget and is critical to sustaining our important youth mentoring programs. Your generous support is critical in making this possible!
