BLING Meets BEST is a team of past attendees of the BLING/BEST weekend events hosted by SBAGNE each year. Attendees (kids with spina bifida age 11-17), as well as their friends and families, have created this team to raise funds to support BLING (Better Living in Girls) and BEST (Boys, Esteem, Success and Training) as well as other SBAGNE programs.
