Tunzi, a big supporter of the nonprofit Best Buddies, saw firsthand how the bakery has hired individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
“It is very important. I speak of, you know, inclusion and just, you know, acceptance of different people into the world. Because we do come into different ways and everybody is a human being at the end of the day. And so it’s so, so important to make sure that inclusivity is a thing,” Tunzi said. “I think what Best Buddies is doing is one of the most incredible things in the world. And so I’m happy to be a part of it and to lend my voice and my help when I can.”READ MORE: Man Struck, Killed On I-95 Near Broward Boulevard
