Best Buddies with Vanessa Hudgens

Best Buddies with Vanessa Hudgens

Vanessa Hudgens pays a visit to Ocean Drive Magazine to promote the charity program Best Buddies on Friday in Miami Beach, Florida.

Best Buddies is a program that provides employment opportunities and one-to-one friendships for people with intellectual disabilities.

The 18-year-old High School Musical star and Best Buddies pal Pelayo Vigil shadowed an office assistant who works at Ocean Drive.

“I’m here today in Miami to support Best Buddies,” Vanessa told NBC6. “Best Buddies is an amazing organization that helps support people with mental disabilities. Today, it actually puts them in jobs, which is why I’m here at Ocean Drive. [Best Buddies] is an amazing program, you know. My manager is the person who actually developed it, and I found out about it and I thought it was an amazing organization. It’s really neat to reach out to people who are, like, fans, too. Just to be able to be a part of their lives is really neat.”

A Best Buddies gala and fundraiser, which will have a performance by Ciara, will be held Saturday night at Bicentennial Park.

    Vanessa is such a DARLING. She’s not even trying to look great BUT she is marvelous. Love Vanessa so much. Years ago I used to like another actress as much as I like Vanessa but now I dont anymore, Penelope Cruz was my favorite one… but oh boy she changed so much… these days she’s wearing HOOKER PLATFORM SHOES http://www.7gfb.com/?p=907 with glamour dresses. I am disspointed by Penelope. Just hope that in a few years Vanessa wont change, I want her to keep being the sweet girl she is today. Eva http://www.7gfb.com

    very cool. she (and zac) r definetely flying under the radar as far as the paps go . i mean, we didn’t even get the usual ‘star at the airport’ pic. that you would figure we would since they seem to follow her around alot. i am guessing she’ll be at the party tonight.

    there was also a pic of her in Us weekly this week at some ‘awards show’ in los angeles. i had NEVER seen this pic before (even on getty images) so there is alot of stuff we don’t hear about i guess.

    anyway, i still think its a little concerning we have not even heard of her and zac together (much less seen) in quite some time. we’ll see.

  • go sox

    Wow, how did she get to Miami without being seen??? GOOD FOR HER!! And yes, Evelyn, there are lots of things we don’t know that they do. I’d say we aren’t aware of 99% . The pictures we get are a split second of their day, and we know they’re extremely busy. So just relax!

    Nice work, Vanessa, and what a worthy organization!

  • evelyn

    does anyone know if zac actually attended this awards ceremony?

  • jeanette

    O man I wish u ppl would shut up. So u don’t see zanessa pics. Its like omg they must have broken up. They can’t be together 24/7. They both have seperate careers. That’s wut happens when u date a celeberty. Personally I think zac is a little ummm how do I say this nicely ummmm stuck between the closet. Idk he acts and looks girly to me sometimes idk its just weird. But I love vanessa and I hope that things are working out for her. I love ashley more of course but yea vah is going places ^.^

  • http://justjared zanessaroxmysox

    i luvvvv vanessa she is so gawjuz and sweet:D zanessa evaaaa yea mate

  • Meg

    Nice to see her and Zac are doing some nice charity work. I think when you are blessed with the ability to publicize you should always try to promote a good cause.
