Bridge School fundraiser kicks off summer

MIDDLEBURY — Bridge to Summer, a celebration of the Art of Learning and a summer salutation will be hosted by the Bridge School on Friday, June 7 from 5:30-8:30 p.m., at the school at 1469 Exchange St. in Middlebury. Vermont’s own LC Jazz ensemble will play classic big band music at this community-wide outdoor event, which also features an online and live auction of original art and prints from local artists and supporters.
The evening of dancing, bidding, dinner and sipping will also honor local artist Chris Murray’s Bridge School Silo Mural: “We’re different, we’re the same, we’re all beautiful!”
LC Jazz is a seventeen-member, non-profit organization that believes in giving back to our community. Since 1992, the band has funded music scholarships at Vergennes, Mount Abraham, and Middlebury Union High Schools.  Bridge to Summer will support the band’s mission, as well as kick off Bridge School’s Future 40 Capital Campaign, as the school approaches its 40th anniversary in 2020.
Admission is $10 for adults at the door. Kids 12 and under free. Dinner from Sabai Sabai will be available to purchase at affordable prices, with inexpensive, gluten-free, vegan, and vegetarian-friendly options. Shacksbury Cider, Red Clover Ale Company, and Lincoln Peak Vineyard will sell adult beverages. Non-alcoholic drinks and dessert sold by Bridge School. Parking is available next door at Woodchuck Hard Cider. 
Check out the art and bid online from Saturday, May 18, through Thursday, June 6 at bit.ly/bridgetosummer. The auction continues at the live event on Friday, June 7. Top online bidders can be part of the live action via “proxy bidders” who will up the bidding, per their request and price limit. Bidders don’t need to be present to win an amazing work of art.
