Community Events Program

Make a difference today!

Create or join a fundraiser

The support we receive from community events and individuals makes a huge difference in the lives of our youth who rely on Bridge each day. Your partnership with Bridge enables our youth to reach their full potential and become productive members of the community.

One of the most satisfying, fun, and creative ways you can support our efforts is by participating, supporting or planning an event of your own with proceeds benefiting Bridge! You can plan a golf tournament, a 5K, triathlon, or any type of special event! 

Individuals or companies interested in organizing a fundraising event may contact June Mattioli, Director of Development, at 617-423-9575 Ext. 228, or jmattioli@bridgeotw.org

Winter Walk Boston - February 12, 2017

The first Winter Walk was held on Sunday, February 12, 2017. In an attempt to raise awareness, several hundred people took the opportunity to experience a small part of what the homeless experience every day in the winter—the freezing cold.  People walked a 2-mile route from Copley Square, up Boylston Street, through Boston Common, and back down the other side of the Public Garden. After the walk, everyone joined in a community breakfast while watching a video of shared stories and experiences from members of the community affected by homelessness. Bridge was one of 5 beneficiaries of the proceeds from this inaugural event. (Photos: Click Here)
