Winter Break

We had a wonderful time representing BTS at the 21st annual Manasota B.U.D.S. Buddy Walk! It was a beautiful day of inclusion and philanthropy for a great cause. A huge thank-you to our families and staff who attended!

Thank You to The Patterson Foundation, No Margin, No Mission, and The Sara Leonard Group for all of their guidance and support leading up to our 2023 FastPitch Presentation. We had an incredible chance to share more information about our H.I.V.E. program with the community for their potential investments! We are so appreciative for everyone who attended, and we look forward to initiating such a meaningful service in our community. Stay tuned for more details!
