The Bridge’s annual fundraiser, the Sleepout, is held over a 24-hour period11-29-2014 Sleepout-Bridge starting at 5pm the Friday after Thanksgiving and ending on Saturday at 5pm. This is the organization’s major fund-raiser aimed at raising funds and awareness for those in need in our community. Church and community business representatives take 1-hour blocks of time during the 24-hours and stay in the cold in a make shift home in front of the Sayre Theatre.

The 2015 Sleepout was held on Friday, November 27 starting at 5pm through Saturday, November 28th at 5pm in front of the Sayre Theatre.  We are over halfway to the $30,000 goal with $18,203.08!  Hope you will consider helping us reach the goal and help those in need this winter and through the year.
