The wind blew and the rain fell, but the weather couldn't dampen the spirits of those who attended The Bridge event at Ozzie's Restaurant on April 25. Many thanks to those who supported The Bridge by attending the event, selling tickets, donating items for the auction, and bidding on those items! Special thanks go to event sponsors: John Bailey/Chad-Nic Properties; Jill & Mike Cooper; Anonymous; Steve Ecker/Top Producers Search Firm, Inc.; Husch Blackwell, LLP; Lafayette Park UMC; Shamrock Raisdletter and Printing Co.; and Spinnaker-St. Louis. Thanks, too, to Roberto Gallardo, owner of Ozzie's Restaurant and Sports Bar, for providing the great venue, and to Cardinals great Ozzie Smith, for posing for photographs, signing autographs--and for being a most gracious VIP.

The Bridge is a 501 (c)(3) agency that provides services for homeless individuals in the downtown area and  is located at Centenary Methodist Church, 1610 Olive St. Funding in part is provided through the City’s Affordable Housing Trust Fund.
