by: in LEAP

Christy Belden, VP of Media + Marketing at LEAP, a digital agency, joined Louisville Ad Fed’s Dream Team this year, benefiting Best Buddies of Kentucky.

As a non-profit organization, Best Buddies has a mission of establishing a global volunteer movement that creates one-to-one friendships for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

The Kentucky chapter of Best Buddies will be hosting its first Fairways to Friendship Gold Scramble at Cardinal Club on Monday, October 24, 2011. Registration begins at 8:00AM. The scramble begins at 9:00AM. Teams of four will play eighteen holes with Best Buddies participants, their families, golf professionals, volunteers and sponsors.

The scramble will raise awareness for those issues that face people with developmental disabilities, including acquiring jobs and maintaining friendships.
