BridgeTown Bash has been the largest fundraiser for the Vital Life Foundation since 2012. Known to sponsors and donors as an annual not-to-be missed celebration of Vital Life’s mission, last year the festivities were paused because of COVID-19 safety restrictions.
This year the theme of the event was Rise & Shine, a tribute to the sponsors and donors that made the selfless choice to continue to support the Foundation in 2020, a challenging year in every possible way. The event returned to Oregon wine country and featured the opportunity to take a ride in a tethered hot air balloon, giving guests a chance to see the horizon from a new perspective.
This year’s event offered a special night of inspiration, shared purpose and the chance to raise significant funds that will continue the mission of the Foundation—to provide meaning and vitality in the lives of seniors and staff members living and working in senior care. Vital Life is proud to announce that $714,505 dollars were raised that night, which represents a giant comeback, almost matching the pre-pandemic total raised in 2019. The success of this fundraising event is a huge testament to the connection sponsors and donors feel to the work that is accomplished by the Foundation.
