What's New at Best Friends?
In June, Best Friends was chosen as one of three charities to present to the members of Elevate 920, a group of community-minded folks who pledge to give $100 every three months to a local charity. After each of the three non-profits presented their five minute ‘pitch’, members voted for the organization they’d like to see receive the $8,000 donation. The mission and work of Best Friends resonated with the crowd and we were thrilled to be the charity to receive the donation. Jaime Kriewaldt, the Executive Director at Best Friends said, “Elevate 920 is an inspired group of people who come together and make a huge difference, four times a year, to wonderful, deserving charities. We are so honored to be the recipient of this contribution.”
