Letter: Thanks for supporting the Buddy Program

Thanks for supporting the Buddy Program
On Nov. 5, Big and Little Buddies, along with other special guests, gathered at the beautiful Caribou Club to enjoy our annual celebration dinner. From face painting and a chocolate fountain to dancing and special recognitions, the night was a huge success and it would not have been possible without the generosity of the Caribou Club. For the past four years, the Caribou Club has graciously hosted our annual dinner and we could not ask for a more fun place to hold our event! Thank you to Richard Edwards and Billy Stolz and the entire Caribou Club management and staff for making this evening so memorable.
The Buddy Program announced the recipient of our awards: The Hero Award went to Charlie Hopton, the Angel Award went to Jim Fifield and Helen DeFrance, the Golden Lemon Award went to Ryan Larkin and the Golden Carabiner Award went to Karen and Nathan Sandler and Dirk Bockelman with Aspen Expeditions. In addition, we acknowledged Mona Look-Mazza's amazing service to our board of directors and, most importantly, we recognized the time and energy that each Big Buddy gives to their Little Buddy — the commitment of these amazing volunteers makes our program so special. Thank you.
As the Buddy Program continues to empower youth through mentoring experiences in order to achieve their full potential, we recognize we could not do it without the support and commitment from our community.
