About the Gala
Bridges Academy's annual Gala is a truly magical event. It brings our entire community of supporters together to fund-raise and celebrate our unique mission. Each year our gala committees — made up of our multi-talented parents — create a new theme with its own special flair. The online auction serves two functions: it introduces people from around the world to our community and our mission while also allowing them to bid on amazing experiences and items that can only be found right here in the heart of the entertainment capital. The evening offers our parents, faculty, alumni and friends an opportunity to lift a glass, socialize and raise money for Bridges!

2020: Rock N Roll Gala
UPDATE: The 2020 Gala has been canceled due to the current health crisis. Further information regarding our online auction and a future tribute to Don Peake will be forthcoming.
The 2020 Bridges Gala takes place on Saturday, April 25, at The Rose in Pasadena. We could use your help in soliciting items for the annual Gala auction! Check out the wish list, download the solicitation letter and donation forms, and bring them to local businesses. Reach out to Lisa Herz with any questions.
This year’s Gala promises to be a very special event, as we are honoring valued teacher and friend Don Peake — who also happens to be a Musician’s Hall of Fame inductee. Don helped usher in the rock era by creating some of the greatest riffs in music history — riffs that generations of rock fans have grown up on. If you love rock n' roll, Bridges Academy, and Don Peake, purchase a tribute page in our Gala program and/or buy tickets to attend the 2020 Gala and see Don and his colleagues play live.
You may also advertise your local business in our program, which will be distributed to our vast network of attendees. Please see our flyer for full-page, half-page, quarter-page, and business card-size pricing. Your purchase is tax-deductible, and we would be truly grateful for your support. Thank you for your consideration.
If you have any questions or are interested in purchasing tickets, please don’t hesitate to contact Lisa Herz at 818.506.1091 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Watch Don perform, talk Ray Charles, and share some amazing musical experiences.
