It’s almost unthinkable but true. Many of the children from Immokalee who came to Hideaway Beach on Wednesday for Buddy Day, the 21st year the program has run, have never been to the beach, never seen the Gulf, despite having lived in Southwest Florida all their lives. Giving the youngsters that experience, and the chance to see, to quote Disney’s ‘Aladdin,’ a whole new world, was the impetus for the program. This year, more second graders than ever before, about 170, showed up at Hideaway Beach Club’s picnic grove on the northwest corner of Marco Island. Each “little buddy” was paired with an adult volunteer, a “big buddy,” who helped facilitate his or her buddy’s day at the beach.
