04 Jul 2018 Buddy Awards a Success – Winners Announced!
It was a night of a thousand Vegas stars as artists, volunteers, season ticket holders, and supporters came out to celebrate what was another hugely successful season. The “Buddy Goes to Vegas” theme was a hit and it was one of the largest showings in several years. We also gave a tribute to Ted Collins, who relinquished his title of board president after six years (not leaving board) to Rita Marks who became president effective July 1, in this video by board members Charlotte Gilman and Peter Leondedis which clearly shows that Ted can do anything better than everyone else (especially Peter). Thanks for your marvelous service Ted!
Congratulations to all the 2017-2018 Buddy Award winners and to all the casts and crews. Thank you to all who made it such a great party and a wonderful season!
