Carnegie Hall Benefit Concert on November 10, 2011

Best Buddies New York is a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. And this amazing nonprofit is being honored in an equally fantastic benefit at Carnegie Hall next month.

As with many special events, tickets are a little pricey, but it’s for causes like these that the benefit far outweighs the cost.

I am anxious about James going to middle school next year on many levels, but Best Buddies is one thing I’m actually looking forward to him aging into!
