The Buddy Program’s Third Annual Gingerbread House Workshop, hosted by Helen DeFrance and Jim Fifield, was held Sunday afternoon, hosted by The Little Nell. About 140 Buddies gathered for a sugar-fueled afternoon of creative energy, decorating a gingerbread house in their style and taking it home to kick off the holiday season. Thanks to generous individuals and business sponsors, the event was free for all, and more than $65,000 was raised for the Buddy Program.
