Portland’s favorite, KGW Anchor Drew Carney and Benefit Auctions 360's Johnna Wells will co-host our event. Entertainment will be provided by talented youth performers from Friends of Noise. Come celebrate the transformative power of intergenerational communities!
About the Gala
The IMAGINE Fall Auction & Gala is the premier fundraising event for Bridge Meadows. Since its inception in 2005, the IMAGINE Fall Auction & Gala has raised more than $2 million to sustain and build intentional, intergenerational neighborhoods where children, families, and elders flourish together.
Why support the Gala?
Bridge Meadows builds purposeful communities where children formerly in foster care, their forever families, and elders of modest means flourish together. We provide safe, affordable housing that helps interrupt the cycle of poverty, instability, and isolation that weakens communities over generations. Youth find comfort in stable homes. Parents receive support and guidance. Elders find the opportunity to make a meaningful difference in the lives of families and children. Bridge Meadows community members are invested in each other’s success. With safe, stable housing, and a shared social purpose, Bridge Meadows residents can re-orient themselves toward improved family stability, wellness, education, and economic outcomes. Our program has a lasting impact on the health and well-being of children who have experienced trauma, their adoptive parents, and elders who live in our communities. As we continue to look beyond our two communities, North Portland and Beaverton, we feel a grand sense of urgency to respond and build more intergenerational communities. Proceeds from the IMAGINE gala & auction will support on-site programs, mental health services and future community site developments.
Your support at the IMAGINE Fall Auction & Gala will make it possible for future generations to benefit from a Bridge Meadows community.
