Nonna’s Pasta and Pizzeria is a great Italian joint that recently hosted one of our Best Buddies Philippines activities through a Pizza Making Workshop in their Madison Galeries outlet.
The Gang’s All Here
For this hands-on activity we invited our Friendship Chapters from the south to take part. We had a wide range of participants that enjoyed themselves both with their “Buddies for a Day,” and with our family members who joined us too!
I must admit, I was humbled and thrilled at the same time, when my friends Donna from South Snippets and Millie from Refill N Beyond approached me with a proposal for this family friendly, all inclusive activity. Since they both have tender hearts, they know and believe that everyone should be included all the time, and what better way to celebrate that fact that making Pizza?
Everybody loves PIZZA!
I mean, COME ON, WHO DOESN’T LOVE PIZZA?
All the Buddy Matches who visited with us during this activity were taught how to make a pizza and of course they got to enjoy their cheesy creations after they were cooked in the brick oven.
Buddies for a Day
We had kiddos of all ages come out with their peer buddies, and some who have been matched with a friend, for some time now. That’s the beauty in what we do: if you don’t have a peer buddy already, we can match you “for the day,” to make this activity all the more fun.
In fact, even the buddies who came out and joined our activities for the first time thought it was a fantastic idea. I’m quite sure the PIZZA had something to do with these warm and fuzzy feelings, too!
We even had time to celebrate some of our Buddies’ birthdays. That’s the beauty in getting together once a month with everyone. We get to enjoy each others’ company while learning something new about our friends, and nosh on great food.
In fact, we had so much fun, that Nonna’s is inviting another group back to learn how to make pasta from a true blue Italian chef!
Doesn’t this sound fun?
Drop me a message if you think this is something you would like to do with our Buddies!
You know the saying…”The More the Merrier!”
Help from our friends
Thanks to our very special sponsors and organizers for this enriching activity where we got to build friendships, further inclusion, and enjoy the love of pizza!!
