The Children's Charity Ball is held in January each year to raise funds to provide services for the children of our community. The Bridge welcomes donations to the Children's Charity Ball on many levels. You can become an event sponsor (sponsorships range from a $100 business-card-sized ad in the program book to a major event sponsor up to the Presenting Sponsor level of $20,000). Another way to support the ball is by donating an item to the live and silent auctions that will feature an outstanding array of unique and creative items. The event also requires an energized committee of volunteers who contribute their time and talents in many ways from soliciting sponsorships, to making centerpieces, to packaging and arranging auction items, to preparing mailings. Breakfast on The Bridge
The annual September breakfast for school and human service professionals and other community leaders from West Hartford and the surrounding region is an opportunity for individuals who work with young people and families to network and share services. The Bridge welcomes sponsorships and donations of food--baked goods, fruit, juice, coffee, fall flowers, and paper goods.Tune-In to Life
Tune-In to Life Week, which is held each year in early spring, offers programs and events to promote positive, healthy activities for all ages and to raise community awareness about drug and alcohol abuse. West Hartford residents are invited to participate in a variety of activities, both educational and fun, that are sponsored by several organizations in town. Volunteers are invited to help prepare large mailings and to become involved in the details of individual events.Teen Events
A variety of activities and special events for teens are held throughout the year.
