{Best Buddies, part 2}

I mentioned this program in a recent post -- it's the one where they pair students
who have disabilities with students who don't.

Here's the story I put together thanks to the help and participation of Houston,
Brady, Houston's parents, Matt, & Sunni.


Last night I shot the annual Best Buddies Arizona fundraiser so we could air a
follow up story on it. It was a pretty amazing event with a Hollywood theme.
Houston and Brady were honored with an award for best match from 08-09.
It was a whose who of Phoenix celebs. And founder Anthony Kennedy Shriver
was even in attendance. I was really glad I went!
