Marking the eleventh year of the Best Buddies Staples High School Buddy Ball, chapters from across Connecticut joined together on May 22nd in Westport for dancing, fun and laughter. 

Buddy Pairs and Associate Members from seven schools and several local community organizations participated in the luau themed dance this year.

The attendees greeted old friends and made new ones.  There were smiles all around as Buddies sang their favorite songs with their Peer Buddies and the conga line traveled around the balloon filled cafeteria.

Participants were surprised by special guest, Alyssa Taglia, Miss Teen Connecticut. Alyssa graciously joined the members for a spin around the dance floor, signed autographs and took pictures. 

As one of the oldest chapters of the state of Connecticut, the Staples Best Buddies chapter has been creating friendships since 1996.

The chapter continues to grow and spread the mission of Best Buddies to family, friends and community members.

And as the school year winds down, participants are already asking the question…when I next years Buddy Ball?
