Bridges Parents: Think Three by March 23!
Parents! It is go-time for Gala ... and also get-time! We need items for our annual auction, so expect a call from one of our team members, who can help you with ideas for contributions. Our goal is to receive THREE ITEMS from each family BY MARCH 23, which not only would create an incredible auction catalog, but also would help make the Gala a true community event. Obtaining items is easier than you might think!
Items we especially need:
March 23 is the deadline for turning in items, so THINK THREE BY MARCH 23! We also can accept donations over spring break. So if you're going someplace fabulous over the break, please don't forget to ask!
Lastly, underwriting opportunities still are available, and this year we are rolling out corporate sponsorship opportunities as well. If you work for, with, or own a company that would be willing to sponsor our Gala, please contact Colleen Ventimilia. For underwriting opportunities, please contact Valerie Weisenfeld.
If you have any questions, please contact Lisa Herz, Tami Turner, or Colleen Ventimilia.
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!
