According to The Bridge Board Chair Lynn McBee,
“Join our hosts, Nasiba and Thomas Hartland-Mackie, in celebrating The Bridge’s 10th Anniversary at The Bomb Factory in Deep Ellum on Thursday, September 20. This special anniversary event is sponsored by The McManemin Family Fund of Communities Foundation of Texas and will feature a performance from four-time Grammy Award nominated artist, Jewel!
“Jewel went from a girl who grew up in Alaska with no running water, to a homeless teenager in San Diego, to an award-winning, Multi-Platinum recording artist who released one of the best-selling debuts of all time. You will be moved when you learn of Jewel’s personal experience with homelessness.
“Since opening in 2008, The Bridge’s 24-hour homeless recovery services have improved the lives of more than 39,700 adults! With homelessness rising in Dallas by 9% in just the last year, and 25% of our community experiencing poverty, you can make an IMPACT!
“Special congratulations to the 2018 Bridge Builder recipients, The Meadows Foundation, Sarah Losinger and Judy Noble for their admirable advocacy and commitment over the past 10 years.
And our thanks to Presenting sponsor The McManemin Family Fund of Communities Foundation of Texas, as we;; as additional sponsors Matthews Southwest, Jennifer and Tom Karol, Susan and Bill Montgomery, Catherine and William Rose and Mary and Mike Terry.”
