To our Bridge Fund Family and Friends,
After careful consideration, we have decided to cancel two major Bridge Fund events: The Champions for Community Happy Hour and Auction on March 22 and The Annual Bridge Fund Celebration on April 7. Both events were to be held at the Pelican's Nest Golf Club. As disappointing and difficult as these decisions were to make, they are the right decisions given the growing concerns over the coronavirus pandemic.
Please note, however, that two Champions for Community events: the Pickleball March Madness competition on March 15 and The ACEs Tournament on March 21 are scheduled as planned.
We are pleased to announce that we are replacing the March 22 Auction with an Online and Silent Auction to be held April 1 - 4. There are 50 wonderful items available for your bids either online or at the Pelican Landing Community Center. Stay tuned... more details to follow.
For the over 200 supporters who have registered for The Bridge Fund Happy Hour and Auction, we hope you will consider leaving the registration fee with the Bridge Fund as a donation for which we would be most appreciative. Or, you may request a refund by sending a note with your mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org. Either way, thank you for supporting TBF.
We wish to express our appreciation to the generous sponsors and the many volunteers who have worked diligently on these events. Without their support and hard work, these events would not be possible. And a special thank you to Caroline Crew who has been most instrumental in shaping these events.
We want you to be assured that The Bridge Fund stands ready to assist our neighbors who will undoubtedly experience serious financial and personal health challenges as this pandemic becomes more widespread. Thank you for allowing TBF to live out our mission of "neighbors helping neighbors in need."
Stay safe and well,
The Bridge Fund Board of Directors
