The Bridge Board

The Bridge Board is a diverse group of young professionals committed to supporting the Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland. Through strategically planned programming and a variety of fundraising events, the Bridge Board helps deliver the mission of the Clubs to encourage the kids and teens to become productive, responsible and caring citizens.

Volunteering

Maintaining a consistent presence in the clubs is one of the pillars of the board’s strategy. We hold monthly volunteer events in the clubs and encourage additional volunteering from our members. Our volunteer events cover a variety of educational and lifestyle topics and cater to both elementary-aged and high school students, offering many ways to connect with the club members.

Fundraising

We host two major fundraising events throughout the year. The funds raised through these events help us continue to provide programming to the clubs, as well as scholarships to college-age alumni of the clubs.

Our upcoming events:

Guest Bartending – May 18, 2018
Our members will be bartending for tips at Barley House in Downtown Cleveland. Donate a virtual tip in advance or stop and see us at the event.

10th Annual Tailgate in Tremont – September 22, 2018
Join us at The South Side in Tremont for a tailgate event including college football games on TV screens, raffles, corn hole, and typical tailgate food and drink. Tickets will go on sale soon.
