Best Buddies' young professional network in D.C. gathered last night at Teatro Goldoni for a charitable night of fun, friends, and drinks. The fundraiser welcomed all of the nonprofit's young professional supporters and friends.

The evening included a raffle with prizes such as a VIP experience with High Life Entertainment, a private shopping event at Fresh of Georgetown, training sessions at Washington Sports Club, and much more including prizes from Teatro Goldini and 1201 Salon.
