Champion of the Year Gala

Las Vegas, NV – Caesars Palace, Augustus Ballroom

Champion of the Year is an annual fundraising competition organized by the Best Buddies staff, Event Committee and Advisory Board, featuring a select group of individuals, professionals and community leaders prominent in the community. These philanthropic trailblazers compete to raise the most funds for Best Buddies and earn the ultimate title of Champion of the Year.

By reaching out to the community to raise funds and spread awareness, candidates champion for Best Buddies, our mission, and people with intellectual and developmental disabilities throughout.
Following the twelve-week campaign, Best Buddies will recognize the candidate who has raised the largest amount in donations at the annual Champion of the Year Gala. By definition, that candidate will have surpassed all rivals in the competition; and therefore, becomes a champion. He or she will aptly receive the title of Champion of the Year! Blue Marble Cocktails will be a part of this incredible charity event.

Alan Miller, CEO and Founder of Blue Marble stated, “We are a family owned and operated business so with that we love to be involved in our local communities. Las Vegas has been so welcoming to us, so it is our honor to give back to a cause that means so much to Las Vegas. Our biggest hope is to inspire other individuals to get involved in their local communities. No matter how big or small involvement can be it all helps.”
