Bridges is creating a secure & user-friendly virtual silent auction with numerous baskets that you can access from any computer or smartphone. These high-quality, unique auction baskets will be available for viewing soon, and the auction will begin in the upcoming weeks.



The virtual auction is hosted through Charity Auctions Today. While silent auction purchases won't support competing congregations, this is a fun way to win unique gifts & support the Bridges mission. All auction proceeds will support Bridges to Housing Stability.

Spread the word about this exciting event by sharing the event flyer.
