The Dallas Association of Young Lawyers (DAYL) 2015 Leadership Class will host the inaugural Dallas Bridge Bash to benefit Communities In Schools of the Dallas Region’s (CISDR) Ketchup Saturday program. The event will be held on the Continental Avenue Bridge on Saturday, April 16 from 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.
“The decision made by the current Leadership Class to benefit Communities in Schools Dallas was an easy one,” said DAYL Leadership Class Member Neel Gonuguntla. “Not only does the Bridge Bash work to help our students, but it also brings the community together to admire the Dallas Skyline, its beautiful architecture and its amazing local talent.”
The Dallas Bridge Bash, chosen as the annual project by members of the DAYL 2015 Leadership Class, is the first of many that will focus on bridging the severe education gap that exists in Dallas County elementary schools. All proceeds will be donated to CISDR programs to aid in the continuation of its Ketchup Saturday programs, ensuring that underprivileged children are equipped to succeed in school and ultimately, in life.
“Ketchup Saturday is an integral part of the academic advancement of children within the local campuses and districts we serve” said CISDR CEO and President Dr. Judith Allen-Bazemore. “It was initially designed to offer a dynamic way for students to “catch up” in certain school subjects while increasing self-confidence and motivation to complete coursework and improve grades. Keeping this project alive is important, and we are grateful to have the Dallas Association of Young Lawyers invest in CISDR!”
The 2016 inaugural Bridge Bash will host an array of food vendors including Urban Taco, Mr. Phil’s BBQ and catfish, Fadi’s Mediterranean Grill and the Community Beer Company. Additionally, performances by the Time Machine Band, American Idol’s Trevor Douglas, manintheraw and other local Dallas talent will take center stage during the event.
