POSTPONED  Bridges’ Sunset Celebration, May 12!

Milford, CT  On Thursday, May 12, Bridges will host a benefit event – “A Good Vibrations Sunset Party to Celebrate the Joy of Healthy Young Minds.” The party will take place at the Milford Yacht Club, from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. Tickets are $50. There will be festive foods, cash bar, (1 drink ticket is included), entertainment by local young artists, music and raffle prizes. Proceeds from this event will help support Bridges’ programs and services for children and young adults.

“We are excited to invite the community to gather with us for our Good Vibrations Sunset Party, to relax at day’s end, be entertained by some very talented local students, and hear about Bridges work, specifically new programs that are helping young adults,” said Bridges’ CEO and President Barbara DiMauro. “Sunset Celebrations mark a transition in our day, and provide an opportunity to reflect and restore ourselves for the coming day.

Bridges’ programs for young adults are designed to help people ages 16-25, who may be experiencing difficulty transitioning to the independence and responsibilities of adulthood, possibly due to an underlying mental health or substance abuse issue. Our goal is to reach these young people before these challenges become overwhelming and result in crisis, so they may successfully make the transition to the next phase of their lives,” DiMauro continued. “We hope our guests will come away from this event with a sense of joy and the good vibrations gained from helping young people in our community!”

Milford resident and business consultant Rachel Merva serves as Bridges’ Development Committee Chairperson. For more information on sponsorship opportunities for this event please contact Marcy Hotchkiss, 203-878-6365, or
