We are very grateful to all of the sponsors, auction donors and volunteers who helped to make this event a success. Please click on this link for a complete list of names.

We invite you to attend the luncheon, be a sponsor, auction donor, or to serve on the planning committee. If you are interested in getting involved with the 2017 Bridge Builders’ Brunch in any capacity, please email Jody Widing at
