Thank you to everyone who braved the heat and made it to the Senior Buddy Appreciation Happy Hour at Vail Brewing Company! You are someone who matters to someone who matters, and we know that Buddy Mentors wouldn’t exist without your time and dedication. Thank you. Vail Mountain Coffee and Tea, Mangiare Italian Market, Solandra Natural Products, and DJ and Dahlia’s provided door prizes.
Sadly, this event was the last one for Diana Loera, the Youth Violence Prevention Specialist at Bright Future Foundation. Diana, who has just completed the second year of her education degree at Colorado Mountain College, is beginning her student teaching year at Edwards Elementary this fall. Although we are very sad to see Diana go, we are happy that she will be able to continue positively affecting the lives of youth as a teacher. Thank you for all you’ve done for Buddy Mentors and Bright Future Foundation, Diana.
