Life Is Sweet 2010

2010 Best Buddies Virginia Life is Sweet
Life is Sweet Chefs and their Buddy

Best Buddies Virginia is dedicated to establishing a statewide movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Best Buddies Virginia partners with local public schools, universities, government agencies and other disability service providers to service over 10,000 lives in Virginia every year.

This year is the sixth annual Life is Sweet fundraiser. It is the major event that helps fund Best Buddies Virginia activities. Each chef is paired with a buddy to present a desert specially prepared for this event. Over 500 guest sample deserts from each of these award winner chefs and their buddy.
