    A Benefit for the Bridge to College Program

    A Year of Celebrations and Accomplishments

    More than 120 guests filled RoAnn Costin’s beautiful garden on Sunday, June 1, sipping peach Bellinis and making new friends at our annual benefit for the Community Learning Center’s Bridge to College program. The Friends of CLC are the primary funders for Bridge. Honorary Chair Sacha Pfeiffer from WBUR spoke about her experiences as a volunteer tutor at CLC and then introduced several Bridge graduates. The Bridge alumni relayed their stories of challenge, determination, and hope and responded to questions from the crowd. We are grateful to all our supporters and volunteers who helped us reach our fundraising goal for this event, but that doesn’t mean we can rest on our laurels. The Friends of CLC rely on your ongoing support to create a secure future for Bridge to College and to maintain or expand other student services, especially in the current climate of uncertain public funding.
