Saratoga Bridges’ virtual White Party with a SPLASH of Color held on Friday, September 25 raised over $50,000 net in generous sponsorship dollars and through their online Silent Auction. The crucial funds will assist the agency with the unanticipated expenses incurred by the COVID-19 pandemic as well as generating support for their non-funded or underfunded programs.

The evening began with close to 100 guests picking up their ‘Bridges Boxes’ with food from Hattie’s at their iconic restaurant (thanks to Darling Doughnuts and DeCrescente Distributing for providing dessert and beverages.) After which, Co-Chairs Sarah Samascott and Lisamarie Rudzinski invited the community to join them as they streamed live on Facebook (which can still be viewed) from Sarah’s home, featuring the fantabulous music provided by Justin Joyner.

The evening culminated with the closing of their Silent Auction with included:

  • A beautiful new deck donated by Curtis Lumber and Homes by Malta Development Co., Inc.
  • One week stay at Sanibel Island, FL with JetBlue tickets
