On Friday, February 3, several Bethlehem Central students attended the 2017 Best Buddies Friendship Ball held at the Hilton Garden Inn in downtown Troy. The event is a much-anticipated event for the BC chapter of Best Buddies, whose mission is to create one-to-one friendships and break down social barriers for people with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities.

The Friendship Ball is a free, semi-formal event for student buddies where they are given the chance to be a part of a significant night in a safe environment where they know they are accepted for who they are and embraced for their abilities.
