YOUTH MATTERS BENEFIT CONCERT
Sat, March 25, 2017, 8:00 PM – 10:00 PM CDT
A great evening of hand clapping and joyful singing is approaching. Raising the Bridge personally invites you to our 1st Annual Benefit Concert and raffle drawings. It’s also a key fund-raiser for Raising the Bridge mentoring and athletic programs. Your support makes a big difference. The performers will include Nicole Lashaun and Entity, Lawyer Turner and Justin Duenas. The music will be spectacular!
Funds received from this event will help Raising the Bridge purchase transportation for their mentoring and athletic programs. Raising the Bridge is a 501c3 approved non-profit organization that provides free mentoring, life skills, athletic programs, and events to at-risk youth ages 12-18 in the greater Mesquite community. Raising the Bridge is growing fast. Our mentoring programs have gone from having 22 mentees in August of 2016 to now having 40 mentees as of January 2017. Due to the rapid growth, we’ve had to move our programs to another location and will have a second open house for our programs with a total number of 80 registrants.
Raising the Bridge is currently in need of transportation to help transport our youth to and from our programs and events scheduled for this year. Having transportation is very vital to our organization due to the circumstances that our youth currently face. Circumstances such as; single parent homes with no means of transportation, but wish to have their teens apart of our free programs. This transportation will also support our Mesquite Social Workers who work with homeless teens to help transport them to and from shelters outside of Mesquite. We will accept donation the night of the concert. We encourage you to bring a friend or colleague and your checkbook.
Thank you in advance for your support of this important event. Together we can make a difference!
