It was a magical night for us at A Bridge For Kids as we celebrated their 4th Annual Casino Night Fundraiser on Saturday, November 5. Magicians strolled among the guests treated them to amazing tricks, food and drink was plentiful, and casino games entertained everyone. But the main feature of the night came from the teen speakers who shared with guests the immense and positive effect the sponsorships they received from the organization have had on their lives.
Excitement over the silent and live auctions items and the paddle raise donations yielded a total of over $175,000 raised to fund programs will help San Diego high achieving, low income teens create a brighter future. These programs include sponsorships to support teens interests and talents in academics, athletics and the arts, West and East coast College Campus tours, SAT/ACT exam preparation, and financial assistance for tutoring.
A Bridge for Kids would like to thank everyone for your support of our 4th Annual Casino Night and helping make it our first ever Sold Out event! Your generosity is greatly appreciated and will allow us to continue providing life changing programs that will help “level the playing field” for low income kids in San Diego.
