Get your tickets here.

To celebrate our momentous 25-year anniversary, we’ll reflect on all of the experiences that brought us here, and toast the students, teachers, and staff who have been a part of this journey. Spend your evening soaking up this year’s fun prom theme with prom photos, dinner, dancing, student art silent auction, live auction, and fun games. 

We know that Bridges has made a lasting impact on the lives of hundreds of students, the dedicated staff members who served them, their parents, grandparents and aunts and uncles who witnessed them blossom and grow at Bridges. At our 2024 Gala, we will celebrate the amazing people who have been a part of Bridges over the past two and a half decades.  

Every dollar we raise will support Bridges this school year – and we have many ways to help make this an unforgettable night for all! 

Sponsorship Opportunities: Sponsorship opportunities for Bridges’ 2024 Gala are officially open. Bridges’ annual gala attracts a wide range of business and community support. Sponsorships help underwrite the expense of hosting this elegant evening and elevate the success of this major fundraiser for Bridges. Sponsorships provide a wonderful way to showcase your business (or individual charitable support). All sponsors will receive complimentary event tickets as well as prominent recognition in the auction program, at the event, and on the school website. We hope that you will join Bridges’ 2024 Gala as a sponsor this year. Learn more about our sponsorship opportunities and benefits here.

Alumni Students (21 and over): What is the most requested student event in Bridges 25 year history? A school dance! This is your chance to make your middle school dance dreams come true! We can’t wait to have you join us on the dancefloor. When getting tickets online, anyone can choose to sponsor an adult alumni student for whom the cost of a ticket is prohibitive. If you are an adult alumni student – 21 and over – please reach out to us at Auction@BrdgesMS.org if the cost of a ticket will prevent you from attending. We don’t want you to miss out and will add you to our confidential sponsored ticket list. 

Alumni Families: We really hope you will join us on April 13th and we want to make sure you know about our Family Sponsorship. The Family Sponsorship provides support for Bridges and includes admission for two, name recognition on website and in program, dinner, wine, and after-hours dance party when the formal program concludes.

Small Business Owners: The Family Sponsorship level is open to individual families as well as small businesses. All proceeds directly support financial aid and Bridges’ specialized academic programming.
