Annual event in support of homeless children and teenagers will be an “all star” evening

Community leaders and key influencers including senators, judges and Superintendent Alberto Carvalho will be in attendance for the All Star fundraiser to support critical initiatives by Miami Bridge Youth & Family Services which provides emergency shelter, counseling and care for homeless children and teenagers in Miami-Dade County and beyond

Miami Bridge Youth & Family Services, Inc., Miami-Dade County’s only emergency shelter for abused, neglected and abandoned children and teenagers, is proud to announce the countdown to its signature fundraiser, Bridge to the Stars, An All Star Evening, presented by City National Bank.

Taking place Saturday, February 11, at the JW Marriott Marquis Miami in downtown Miami, the special fundraiser is hailed as one of the most unique of the season, where attendees will play sports – of sorts – to support an incredible cause. Guests, who will include some of South Florida’s most notable community leaders and activists, will have the chance to bowl in the hotel’s state-of-the-art virtual bowling alley and play pool as well as dance and enjoy lavish cuisine and cocktails.

“This is not only one of our most important events of the year, but one of the most exciting, and it’s an honor to be overseeing it,” said Miami Bridge board member Marlene Quintana, who is co-chairing the event. “Thanks to the countless people involved, Bridge to the Stars has grown in success and continues to generate critical funds for Miami Bridge and the youth it serves.”

Miami Bridge, the City’s only emergency shelter for children and teenagers ages 10-17, provides critical services to youth in crisis including counseling, family counseling and education. Funds raised through Bridge to the Stars will go toward bolstering that outreach.

Event attendees will not only have access to some of the JW Marriott Marquis Miami’s renowned amenities, including the chance to see its NBA-approved basketball court, but a raffle with prizes including a basketball signed by every current player with the Miami Heat.

Miami Bridge Youth and Family Services, Inc, a not-for-profit organization operating out of Northwest Miami-Dade and Homestead for more than 20 years, provides emergency shelter, food and counseling for troubled youths and their families. The organization, which acts as a catalyst for new beginnings, works to rescue kids from lives of victimization and crime, and provides them with structure in a stable and nurturing environment. Miami Bridge shelters more than 800 children and counsels more than 550 families every year, providing them with solutions, alternatives and hope.
