The Bridge School, the leading non-profit organization dedicated to educating children with severe speech and physical impairments, will host an intimate, fundraising event called the Heart of Gold Gala at a private estate in Watermill, New York on Saturday, July 14, 2018. Music legend Neil Young will take to the stage for a special live performance to raise awareness and funds for The Bridge School, which he co-founded and has supported for over 30 years. The Bridge School was started by Pegi Young, Jim Forderer, and speech and language pathologist, Dr. Marilyn Buzolich. Pegi Young and Neil Young were inspired to start the school after they were unable to find a suitable school placement for their non-verbal son, Ben Young, who has cerebral palsy. Since its inception, The Bridge School has been a leader in ensuring that children with severe speech and physical impairments are able to achieve full participation in their communities through augmentative and alternative communication and has developed unique programs and trained highly skilled professionals in the use of state of the art assistive technology.
On July 13, 2018, the Women’s Board of Lincoln Park Zoo will host its annual Zoo Ball, the zoo’s largest fundraising event of the year. Themed “Zoobilee,” this year’s event will honor Lincoln Park Zoo’s 150-year-long commitment to connecting people with nature as it sets the tone for future support of this beloved institution. The highly anticipated gathering attracts nearly 1,000 local philanthropists and zoo supporters each year, inspiring and enchanting guests with an evening of dining and dancing among the wonders of wildlife in the heart of Chicago. More than simply a celebration, Zoo Ball generates a significant financial contribution. Funds raised at the event have supported a number of Lincoln Park Zoo capital projects over the years; last year’s event helped fund the soon-to-be-unveiled Searle Visitor Center, for which the Women’s Board raised $3 million.
