Texas A&M head men’s basketball coach Buzz Williams has established “Buzz’s Bunch,” a program formed to help children with special needs come together socially while enjoying basketball.

Buzz’s Bunch began in 2008 when Williams was the head coach at Marquette, and he continued it at Virginia Tech. The free program has more than 300 members across the nation.

Buzz’s Bunch participants will have a pair of opportunities to interact with Williams, his staff and members of the A&M men’s basketball team.

During the 2019-20 season, two nonconference home games will be designated as the Buzz’s Bunch Games, and members will receive free tickets to their choice of game and have the chance to spend time with players and staff on the court before warmups. Additionally, the 12th annual Buzz’s Bunch Camp will be hosted in Aggieland on Aug. 3.

To join Buzz’s Bunch, email info@buzzsbunch.com with the young person’s name, date of birth, email address, mailing address, phone number, name of parents/guardians, T-shirt size and any special requests or accommodations.

Anyone interested in partnering with or making a donation to Buzz’s Bunch can do so by emailing info@buzzsbunch.com.
