“Underwater Fantasea will help support people with intellectual and developmental disabilities become more independent, and learn through technology by providing much needed funding to the program,” says Eric D. Zimmerman, founder of the Buddy Project and host of the event. “It’s about giving everyone equal access to the technology so that they can have more independence in their daily lives and get stuff done.” “Our program is for everyone, rather it be The Buddy Project program itself for the sales and service of “Old Farm Computer” to raise funds for the program while helping keep stuff out of the landfill, It helps everybody” Tickets can be ordered at http://www.thebuddyprojectball.org.
Frederick’s own Freddie Long Band will perform an eclectic mix of classic rock, eighties, and original music. http://www.freddielong.com.

He has combined his aptitude for technology and his love of helping individuals with special needs and is committed to creating awareness of the importance for the disabled to achieve independence through learning technology that is not easily accessible to them.
