The Buddy Program’s 19th annual Bash for the Buddies raised funds to benefit its mentorship programs.
THE PARTY The Buddy Bash was a circus in all the right ways: Guests enjoyed watching the impressively costumed circus talent perform around the tent, along with colorfully painted animal statues scattered on the lawn. It was all for a good cause, as The Buddy Program hosted its annual fundraising event at its signature venue, Lenny “Boogie” Weinglass’ Merry-Go Ranch. After the silent auctions, guests gathered into the dining and dancing tent. THE GUESTS Angie and Gary Stewart, Amy and John Phelan, Deborah Breen, Helen and Jim Fifield, Skye Weinglass THE HIGHLIGHTS Boogie, lovingly dubbed their ringmaster, said hello from afar with a video that played on the big screen. Guests danced the night away to live music, enjoying funnel cakes, the Bitsy Caravan Bar and the Social Light photo booth—all for the kids, of course. -Muriel Perez
