Thanks to your support, children formerly in foster care are reimagining their futures, adoptive families are finding stability and structure, and elders are discovering renewed meaning and purpose.
This is our mission and Bridge Meadows events are a great way to join with us in a very personal and richly rewarding way. We hope to see you soon!
Bridge Builder Spring Luncheon
Bridge Meadow's annual signature spring event provides essential financial resources to Bridge Meadows and is one of our most important events during the year.
Each year we honor an ordinary person doing extraordinary work in our local community by granting them with the Bridge Builder Award. Past recipients of the Bridge Builder award include Rhoni Wiswall, Portland Commissioner Dan Saltzman, and Bob Walsh of Walsh Construction.
We express our heartfelt gratitude to Boly:Welch, a customized employment recruiting and consulting firm and corporate sponsor of this award. Join us on May 10, 2017 at the Multnomah Athletic Club to help us celebrate family, community, and a shared social purpose.
IMAGINE Fall Auction | Gala
The IMAGINE gala is our largest event each year, with proceeds funding the crucial wrap-around services provided at Bridge Meadows every day.
Guests attending our gala enjoy a fabulous meal prepared by one of Portland’s best caterers, Vibrant Table, and a special signature cocktail – made especially for the event! Throughout the evening guests visit with friends and bid on silent and live auction packages, which are designed with the wine lover, outdoor and indoor sports enthusiast, animal lover, parent, artist, and traveler—both near and abroad—in mind!
This past year, KGW Anchor Drew Carney co-hosted the event alongside Johnna Wells of Benefit 360 Auctions. Miss Julianne Johnson-Weiss brought the crowd to its feet as she sang "Rise Up". Best of all, we raised nearly $250,000 to invest in our unique multi-generational community.
This is a very special evening held at the Portland Art Museum. You will not want to miss it, so mark your calendars for next year's Gala on September 28, 2017!
