Enoch Office Equipment is proud to support local charities and charitable events, like the 2nd annual TasteBuds event presented by Best Buddies Maryland. Founded in 1989 by Anthony Kennedy Shriver, Best Buddies has grown from one chapter on one college campus to a vibrant international organization, impacting more than 350,000 people every year. The mission of Best Buddies is to establish a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
TasteBuds, in its simplest form, is a fundraising event presented by Best Buddies. But TasteBuds is so much more than that. First, this great event brings people together, many for the first time, to witness the magic of the life-changing friendships Best Buddies strives for. Secondly, TasteBuds gives hope to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
“Last year was such a success that our mission was clear,” wrote committee co-chairs Scott Reber and Mike Stack. “We would make it our commitment to attempt to bring you another incredible event even more notable than last year.”
Well, mission accomplished. The 2nd annual TasteBuds event took place on Thursday, September 26, 2013 at the beautiful Hunt Valley Golf Club in Phoenix, Maryland. TasteBuds was a great event, allowing people to enjoy a night out together, while eating fabulous food from some of Baltimore’s top restaurants – including Mamas on the Half Shell, La Cakerie, Fusion, Towson Tavern, Tark’s Grill, the Capital Grille, and so many more – and helping to support Best Buddies Maryland.
“We could not have begun to do this without the inconceivable support of our local community, local businesses, colleagues, and friends,” added Reber and Stack.
You may notice a few familiar names among TasteBud’s host committee, including Enoch Office Equipment’s Rick Donovan, Joseph Enoch – who also serves on the 2013 Best Buddies Maryland Baltimore Advisory Board – and Joe’s wife Candace.
