And Best Buddies Connecticut is hosting a multitude of events including wheelchair basketball and a talent showcase. Head to your state's website and see what events are going on in your area.

On March 18, 2011 Best Buddies will be hosting the Third Annual Palm-Beach Gala. Long time supporters Mark and Mary Freitas and Best Buddies International Board Member Tommy Quick will co-chair the event, hosted in the sumptuous and exclusive Mar-A-Lago. The evening will include cocktails and dinner, exclusive silent and live auctions, followed by a private Michael McDonald concert.

Also in March, is the Spread the Word to End the Word day on March 2, 2011. This is a day where chapters and advocates can get involved by launching various events to spread the word to end the r-word. So go to www.r-word.org to make a pledge to the end the word.
