ISAE Members Can Make a Difference
Support Requested for Best Buddies Auction

Imagine what it would be like if every day your son or daughter went to school and they sat alone. Never talked to another child. Never had a friend. And the next day they did it all again. And the next...


ISAE is partnering with Best Buddies of Iowa to help broaden the Best Buddies program in the state. Best Buddies is dedicated to fostering one-to-one friendships and leadership developments for young people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Which is a long-winded way of saying their goal is to try to make sure every kid can go to school and have a "best buddy" to talk to and to count on.

With your help and thousands of others,
Best Buddies will be able to broaden their outreach to more kids across Iowa.

Best Buddies’ biggest fundraising event is their annual Chef Challenge and auction. This event features dozens of chefs from a wide variety of restaurants who contribute their time, talent and food to be shared and judged by the hundreds of people who come to eat and participate in the live and silent auctions.

How Can YOU Help Make A Difference?
October 4, 2018
Ron Pearson Event Center in West Des Moines at 6:00 p.m.

Tickets are $100 each or $1500 for a table of 10.
Go to to purchase your tickets.


Last year, ISAE came through in flying colors providing overnight stays, event tickets, trips, etc.  
We hope BOTH our Regular and Associate Members
will consider providing items for the 2018 auction. 

Past popular auction items have included:
• Overnight accommodations
• Golf passes
• Event or concert tickets
• Vacation opportunities
• Dining opportunities
• Family outings
• Sporting events
• New electronic items
• Wine accessory baskets
• Signed memorabilia
• Gift certificates

Let your imagination go and see what unique events you or your business may be able to contribute. Don't worry if you think your item might be too small to raise much money.
Best Buddies may choose to pair up items so the "sum is greater than the parts."

Please bring items you wish to donate to the next ISAE Quarterly Membership meeting:
September 24, 2018 at the Des Moines Marriott Downtown 
You may also mail or deliver items directly to:
ISAE at 100 Court Ave., Ste 203, Des Moines, IA 50309

We MUST receive all items no later than September 24!

If you're asking yourself why should I take the time to participate in this?

Ask yourself what your life would have been like as a child and the impact it would have had on you today if there had been a day when there wasn't someone you could call a friend...
a Best Buddy.

If you have questions, please contact ISAE office at or 515-284-7055. 


Thank you
for your continued support of
ISAE and Best Buddies of Iowa!
