Best Buddies International is a nonprofit organization dedicated to establishing a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment, leadership development, and inclusive living for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). On November 18th, Best Buddies hosted their annual fundraiser, "Tastebuds" at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center. Tastebuds is a unique event that features talented chefs from restaurants around the Greater Pittsburgh area serving signature dishes while showing the power and positivity of friendship. The chefs teamed up with a buddy who served as the "sous chefs" for the evening. Baldwin High School student Kaitlyn Anderson was a sous chef and was paired with chef Dustin Gardner from Casbah.
