Our BRiDGES 30 event was a rousing success! The party took place on Thursday, March 9th at the Clubhouse at Patriot Hills. As the evening began, guest mingled, enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and perused the raffle prizes that were available. Entertainment for the evening was provided by the very talented pianist, Milton Koja.
Dr. David Jacobsen, Executive Director of BRiDGES had the honor of acting as master of ceremonies for the evening. After speeches given by a number for Rockland County officials, Dr. Jacobsen turned the floor over to several individuals who shared their personal stories with the crowd. These personal stories helped to highlight the issues that people with disabilities must face and how BRiDGES has helped them overcome those issues. These stories sparked lively and informative conversation that flowed through out the evening as guests enjoyed the delicious menu provided by Patriot Hills.
The evening wound down with a live auction hosted by BRiDGES board member, Howard Hellman and the drawing of the winners for the raffle prizes. All proceeds from these activies will be used to support the mission of BRiDGES.
We want to thank all of our guests for the evening and everyone that sponsored and donated to the event. We want to send a very special thank you to all the individuals who bravely shared their stories!
