Make Yourself at Home

We invite you to savor a night at home for the 2017 Building Bridges Gala.

Each ticket entitles you to a handmade luggage tag and tote made by a Friendship Bridge client, along with access to an exciting online auction. As a ticketholder, you will also be invited to view an online video tour of some of our clients’ homes at 7 p.m. MDT on April 8th!

All ticket purchase donations will be used to directly fund the work we do in Guatemala. We hope you will help us to create opportunities that empower women to build a better life by joining us for this unique event.
