If you’re interested in nonprofit PR or event planning, the Audi Best Buddies Challenge: Hearst Castle will surely spark your interest!
Lorrie and Captain Chesley B. “Sully” Sullenberger III will host a hike and picnic lunch on Saturday, July 24 to raise funds for Best Buddies International, a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating opportunities for friendship, employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). The Sullenbergers are hosting this fundraiser in support of the Audi Best Buddies Challenge: Hearst Castle to help Best Buddies’ local and national programs and engage the organization’s community of volunteers in the Bay Area.
