Best Buddies kicks off fundraising in Portland

Human Interest

The organization helps give people with disabilities more opportunities

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — It was an important night for an organization that works to create opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Best Buddies kicked off its fundraising season at the Lagunitas Community Event space in Northeast Portland.

Among Wednesday night’s speakers were Best Buddies Ambassador Logan Stromberg and swimmer Karen Gaffney who accomplished a relay swim across the English Channel and a fundraising solo swim of Lake Tahoe.

Best Buddies doesn’t have a state office in Oregon but hope the fundraiser will get them closer to their goal of $250,000.
