A Glittering Celebration - The Bridge Project 21st Annual Gala

The Bridge Project Gala is a great opportunity to celebrate our friends and donors as well as showcase all of our programs that serve more than 650 children in Metro Denver

 
PRLog - Sep. 28, 2012 - DENVER -- The Bridge Project, a non-profit located within Denver’s public housing neighborhoods, offers educational opportunities in reading, math, science and technology for children growing up in homes facing economic hardship. For the twenty-first year, Bridge will host its annual gala dinner on Saturday, September 29, at 6 p.m. at the Hyatt Convention Center in Denver. This significant event helps raise twenty-five percent of the organization’s annual budgets.

“The Bridge Project Gala is a great opportunity to celebrate our friends and donors as well as showcase all of our programs that serve more than 650 children in Metro Denver,” said Molly Calhoun, Executive Director of The Bridge Project. “We’re thrilled to have 70 Bridge kids attending college during the upcoming 2012-2013 academic year.”

This year, the gala will honor Keith and Gwen Arnold, two supporters who have worked with Bridge for more than twelve years. Gwen has volunteered as a tutor and Keith served on Bridge’s Advisory Board.  Ed Greene, CBS4 weather and news anchor will serve as this year’s Master of Ceremonies. Featured gala events include a cocktail hour, dinner, silent and live auctions, and live entertainment by Super Diamond. San Francisco's Super Diamond has become one of the most popular live shows at major nightclubs, theaters, ballrooms and public events throughout the United States. The group has generated an exuberant audience response previously unheard of for a tribute band.

The Bridge Project is unique in what it offers the Denver community. One of those unique offerings is that Bridge offers a technology program including a hands-on laboratory in each of their four neighborhood centers, offering each child a chance to learn and communicate effectively online.  More than 95% of Tech Team high school seniors graduate and attend college or trade school.  So far, 148 Bridge high school graduates have received college and trade school scholarships valued at $775,000.
