Each year, Best Buddies chapters in the Southlake area eagerly anticipate the annual Best Buddies Ball. The Ball is a place where Buddies and their Peer Buddies can let loose dancing, socializing and making new friends. 

On Saturday evening, February 8th, Best Buddies High School students arrived dressed and ready to have a great time with their friends on and off the dance floor.

This annual event begun with inviting Best Buddies of Southlake, but has now grown to where we are inviting Special Needs students from all over.  Several different school districts, three different group homes and several Special Needs organizations in the DFW area currently attend the event.

The Scholars & Athletes Servicing Others (SASO) Moms and boys decorated the venue that encompassed the theme of Valentine’s Day. More than 200 special needs students attended the dance with the additional 60 SASO members also took part in the endeavors. The moms and boys served food, assisted with check in and danced with their Best Buddies.   

SASO is seeking to strengthen this bond and broaden the horizons of high school boys and girls, which is a 501c3 non-profit organization that combines philanthropic work and personal growth. The organization's name represents its all-inclusiveness, which is at the heart of its mission. Unlike other service organizations, SASO's only requirement to join is the student must be in grade 9-12 and live in Southlake (do not have to attend Carroll ISD). 

Currently, there are 448 moms and sons in the SASO boys group. The girls group, which held its inaugural meeting Oct. 31, quickly reached its 50 member maximum for the first year. To become a member of the organization please visit SASO.
