The High School’s Best Buddies program were bolstered with much
community support when Martin Accardi, owner of Brekky in Wading River,
joined a Best Buddies chapter meeting to make Buddy Bowls with students
as well as present them with a matching check to funds they raised
during March. Filled with açaí, granola, strawberries, graham crackers,
chocolate chips and marshmallow fluff, the celebration was a culmination
of Best Buddies Month and a monthlong fundraiser at the shop that
raised $520 for the program.
“The money will be going toward our end of the year festivities,
including our Best Buddies Friendship Ball, an island-wide prom for all
Long Island Best Buddies chapters, as well as t-shirts for the Long
Island Friendship Walk,” SWR High School senior and chapter president
Brennan Gorman said.
