Back by popular demand, Best Buddies will be hosting our annual Friendship Ball at the beautiful Double Tree Hotel in Tampa on Sunday, May 18th 2014. This is our end of the year festivity for all our school programs across the Tampa Bay area. It is the one time of the year where all our middle schools, high schools and college programs come together in friendship for one magical night to dance the night away and celebrate a very fun and successful school year. Complete with the crowing of the Friendship Ball Court.
New this year, our event is FREE to attend for all our dedicated program participants! All students must RSVP and have an approved membership application on Best Buddies Online to attend.
Not open to the public. Members may not bring guests.
The deadline is May 5th for all RSVPs. The link will close on May 6th. We will be checking membership applications and eventbrite RSVPs at the door.
Masks are highly encouraged!
There will be food, dessert and beverages and plenty of entertainment. Only students are allowed to attend and required to RSVP. However, parents are allowed to come. You will not be allowed inside the ballroom but there will be a special "Parent Room" with a presentation just for you!
We look forward to seeing you all there!
