Starting on April 1, 2013, Saratoga Bridges will be auctioning off a number of fun and unique items to bid on to raise funds for the vital programs and services we offer to over 800 individuals and their families in Saratoga County, NY.
This auction will have absentee bidding available as we will be auctioning them off at our Annual Gala "The White Party" presented by DIAGEO & CDPHP on Saturday, July 20th, 2013 at Fasig Tipton in Saratoga Springs, NY.
Event Chairs, Beth Alexander & Heather Straughter and Honorary Chairs, Julie & Sonny Bonacio invite you to our Annual Gala "The White Party."
This event is the largest fundraiser for Saratoga Bridges and will feature delicious food from Mazzone Hospitality Catering, Complimentary Cocktails – Courtesy of DIAGEO, A Silent and Live Auction in Fasig-Tipton’s “Auction Room” and music by Gravity.
As you may be aware, the cuts to our budget have been extremely significant. In the last couple of years there has been a reduction of $1.8 million. Currently, if the proposed cuts are approved and implemented it could be an additional $1 million. We are very concerned as to how this will impact the essential programs that we provide to our community.
This is where YOU can help! We were so pleased to see so many of YOU step up and help us raise a record amount (Close to $90,000 NET) last year. Because of this generosity, YOU have kept these vital services operating while raising awareness for or mission which is ‘to provide advocacy for over 800 individuals with disabilities and their families by providing resources that enable them to live enriching lives in the communities where they are valued for their abilities and contributions.’
With your ongoing support, we will continue to be able to offer the highest quality services to the individuals we serve. Show your support by bidding, donating or coming to the event!
