2013 is the 7th season that Bridgeport Village has hosted its annual summer concert series. The Foundation for Tigard/Tualatin Schools has been the beneficiary of all donations collected at the concerts for the past 4 years. The concerts are free, but guests are given the option to “give a buck” at the door. 100% of the donations are donated to the Foundation. Guests who “give a buck” are entered into drawing to win prizes from Bridgeport stores. Additionally, Bridgeport Village restaurant vendors donate 3% of their sales during the concert to the Foundation as well.
The Foundation distributes money among area schools to provide supplies and teaching materials, science software, math clubs and robotics . One school, Alberta Rider Elementary, even used funds to hire a reading teacher. “Bridgeport Village and the supporting vendors of the concert series truly understand the value of having strong schools in their community, and they prove that by creating this fundraising opportunity. The concerts not only allow us to bring awareness and invite the community to make education a priority, but it also lets us showcase the bright musical talent we foster in our schools. We are extremely grateful to Bridgeport Village and look forward to a long partnership,”
“We are so pleased to once again work with the Foundation for Tigard Tualatin Schools with our summer concerts. It’s so exciting to hear about the tangible programs that the schools have been able to launch and the amount of supplies that the program helps the schools purchase,” said Sarah Sumpter, Marketing Manager of Bridgeport Village. “It remains a priority of ours to support local community programs and schools through our events and fundraising efforts.”
Another fun element to the partnership features local student performers and musicians who “warm up” the crowd for the headline act each week.
