The Bridge: Kaua'i to College

Free guidance and support for Kaua'i kids who want to go to college

Gala 2020: Casablanca!

Above, Douglas Kennedy, Chief Marketing Officer of HVNTR GATHR, shares why they sponsor The Bridge!

Supporting our island keiki, their ohana, and our community is the heart of what we do at The Bridge: Kaua’i to College.  You all are the reason we do what we do--and we care about the health and wellbeing of every one of you. And so--in the midst of an evolving coronavirus situation and wanting to honor and safeguard you all--we made the decision to restructure our fundraising efforts this year.  

As you know, our Gala has been the primary way we raise funds to support college prep expenses for our Bridge Kids as well as our annual College Success Workshop open to all Kaua’i graduating seniors.  In the season of the coronavirus, we have decided not to hold our Gala in April.  But in the spirit of creatively restructuring, we invite you to participate in an exciting on-line auction showcasing the many wonderful items provided by our generous donors--it will be opening immediately and closing on April 1!  

So, although there will be no “Casablanca!  An Evening to Remember”, at least this April, perhaps you could pour a glass of something bubbly, put on your favorite music, dance in the living room with someone you love, and consider donating to our work as you have been planning and are able.  

Despite the chaos and upheaval assaulting our world right now, our island youth are still going to school, dreaming dreams, and preparing for their futures! We hope you will continue to offer your help and support.

We thank you, our Kids and families thank you, and we think Kaua’i thanks you, too.   We look forward to seeing you, perhaps in a memorable evening in Casablanca, at an upcoming event next year!

We also thank our generous sponsors:  KIUC, Edward Jones, and HVNTR,

Blessings to you and yours:  health and peace!
