On Sunday, 4/15, Bridge hosted its 26th Annual Dinner/Dance fundraiser. An afternoon of food, dancing and socializing made the event fun for one and all. This year, Bridge implemented a new method for announcing the raffle basket winners. Numbers were drawn by a board member and the winning number listed on a board for guests to view prior to leaving. While not perfected yet, this provided more time for music and dancing which was well received by guests.
Honored this year were Sir Knight Michael Hilley, PKG, FDD and the Olympia Council Knights of Columbus #394 for their work to help the unborn. S.K. Hilley and the council were instrumental in obtaining an ultrasound machine at New Beginnings medical facility located in Queens. Bridge board members supported the council in their efforts to obtain this funding.
This was an important advancement in the mission to protect the unborn as this gives Bridge and other pregnancy service centers a place to send their pregnant women for an ultrasound in Queens. The sonogram enables women to see that they are carrying a life – a baby.
