Earlier this month, we asked the Bridge Winners community to help support Silicon Valley Youth Bridge. We are awed and humbled by the response, which exceeded our goal of $30,000 in less than three weeks. Thanks to the generosity of this community — from local California bridge enthusiasts to donors far away — these kids will continue to enjoy after-school bridge programs, pizza parties, and prizes, and many will receive stipends for travel to the Youth NABC this summer.
SiVY’s success has been built upon a community of volunteers; the only way we can develop the next generation of bridge players is to come together as a community and teach this great game to the young people in our lives. We encourage all bridge players to play a part in this effort, whether by starting a youth bridge organization in your area, volunteering for such an organization that already exists, or continuing to support these organizations financially.
We are grateful to the many bridge players who have contributed time and money to this effort since SiVY was founded in 2013. Today, we wish to especially thank everyone who participated in this month’s fundraising effort and helped us reach our goal:
