Watermill, N.Y. August 21,2009.  Anthony Kennedy Shriver, the Founder of Best Buddies was unable to attend due to the recent loss of his beloved mother Eunice Kennedy Shriver. Eunice was a leader in the worldwide struggle to improve and enhance the lives of individuals with intellectual disabilities. Her life's work will live on through Anthony and his achievements with Best Buddies.  

200 Hamptonites showed up to support Best Buddies, most in chic western attire as the invitation requested. Anne Hearst and Jay McInerney were very gracious hosts. Co-Chairs of the event were Tatiana and Campion Platt, Anne Hearst and Jay McInerney, and Haley and Jason Binn. Guests wore western boots, hats, handkerchiefs and just about anything that could be viewed as a fashion statement. Some of the guests were New York Governor David Paterson, Kick Kennedy, Sharon Bush, Amanda Hearst, Alejandro Santo Domingo, Princess Yasmin Aga Khan, Kathy and Rick Hilton, Tommy Quick and many more.

Buddy Ambassador Rachel Lipke made a heart warming speech about her childhood and how it felt to be teased because she was different. Governor Paterson shared a story about his disability and the effects it had on his life. After the speeches a live auction to Sponsor-a-Buddy Leadership Conference Program in contributions of $1000 was conducted. Hands were raised throughout the room to raise a total of $28,000. The Gala, presented by UBS, raised nearly $275,000 cash and in-kind for Best Buddies International.

Best Buddies was founded by Anthony Kennedy Shriver in 1989
to establish a global volunteer movement treat one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities .As a result
of their involvement with Best Buddies, people with intellectual disabilities secure rewarding jobs, live on their own, and make lifelong friendships.
