The Garage Party Sets Record High

February 22, 2010

Thank you for helping to make this year’s Garage Party Benefit the most successful one yet.  Nearly 325 guests joined us for what has become an annual tradition and THE party of the season.  We are thrilled to announce that the Bridge Builders raised a record $27,000 to support the Auto Donation program of Bridge Communities.

Many client families enter the Transitional Housing program with no car or one that soon breaks down.  Donated used cars are refurbished and given to clients in need of a safe, reliable car for commuting to work and transporting their children to school and child care.  The Auto Donation program is a critical piece to getting client families back on the road to self-sufficiency.

The Garage Party was sponsored by many wonderful local businesses including: Cab’s Wine Bar Bistro, The DuPage Medical Group, Gearhead European Automotive Repair, Ice Miller Legal Counsel, The Kitchen Studio, Tap House Grill.  Many Glen Ellyn and Wheaton restaurants partnered to donate a percentage of their proceeds to Bridge Communities.  These included: Adele’s, Barone’s, Bells and Whistles Snackery, Honey Cafe, Myka’s, Santa Fe, Shannon’s Irish Pub, The Patio, Glen Oak Restaurant.  We sincerely thank all of our sponsors and community partners.

Thank you for your support of Bridge Communities.  Your contribution, even as we all struggle through difficult times, is a testament to value you place on helping the families served by Bridge Communities. We appreciate your commitment to helping our client families reach their goals of permanent housing and self-sufficiency.
