The world could relate when President Obama said in his inauguration speech that we have duties not only to ourselves but also to those around us. In one swoop, he connected with noble organizations facing societys challenges and acknowledged that all Americans should commit to community service. Local do-gooders at Best Buddies are doing their part by running six programs that help people with disabilities here and worldwide. The nonprofit knows that people with intellectual disabilities often lack opportunities for socialization and feel isolated, and as a result the organization is giving Miamians a cool way to jump on the charitable bandwagon. The eighth annual Movable Feast fundraiser entails party after party and plate after plate of vittles from local eateries such as SushiSamba and Davids Café. The event begins at Gemma Lounge and ends with afterparties at SET and the Ritz-Carlton South Beach.
