On Tuesday evening, Anthony Kennedy Shriver hosted an intimate gathering at the MontBlanc boutique on Madison in honor of Best Buddies International. Shriver founded Best Buddies International in 1989 and is a passionate advocate for people with intellectual disabilities.
Guests mingled among the stunning merchandise and sipped on champagne. Anthony gave a moving speech on the important of working with people living with intellectual disabilities and what we all can do to give back. I took some time to chat with Anthony about how New Yorkers can get involved with Best Buddies. “Go to our website, send an email, go on one of our walks, donate money, have your kids raise money at their schools, there are so many things you can do to get involved,” he said.
MontBlanc will be donating 11 percent of proceeds of it’s sales to the Best Buddies foundation between March 1st and March 11th. To shop MontBlanc visit their website here. For more information on Best Buddies visit their website and follow them on @bestbuddies!
