Thrill of Ascot- Thank You!

Thank-you to everyone who helped make the Eleventh Annual Thrill of Ascot a huge success. With your support we raised over $500,000 to help Best Buddies start more chapters in schools across the country. Thank you for helping us surpass our goal once again this year and being part of such an unforgettable event.

A special thank you to our Honourary Chairs, Jeanne Beker and Bernadette Morra, our Advisory Board John Elwood and Rene Pantalone as well as all of our wonderful committee members, especially Jessica Zackheim!

We look forward to seeing you all again next year!
