THE BUDDY WALL 
This project evolved from a trifold to which pictures and bios were glued to a heavy board that needed framing.   The past couple of years the pictures and bios on a vinyl banner have been attached to an existing frame at the park.  Team pictures were added this year.  We thank Mike O'Connell who over the years has been constructing the frame and installing the project.  In addition to their team's fundraising, they have been responsible for the donation of 2,000 tacos from Taco Bell since 2009!

Many months before teams started to get ready for the event, the Promotion Committee (Janet and Jonathan Dolan of Jillian's Miracle Girl) was involved in the making of the brochure.
