Bridge Bash 2012
GET READY for BRIDGE BASH 2012!
Saturday September 22nd
at Cotter's Rainbow Bridge & Big Spring Park
1 DAY - 2,500 PEOPLE
PROVIDING 250,000 MEALS
Local businesses, civic organizations, musicians and artisans will fill the park with booths, stages, activities, and displays. Between stage performances, the Food Bank of North Central Arkansas and its agencies share success stories, hunger statistics, hopes and dreams for their respective organizations and communities. Local businesses will be open, and the economy of Cotter will again be encouraged and strengthened. As agencies, civic organizations, churches, schools, etc come together to encourage and support Bridge Bash, they celebrate the talent of North Central Arkansas and ban together to build a bridge from hunger to hope!
Participants who “Stand for Hope” are asked to raise at least $20 and bring their donations with them to the bridge. Agencies are invited to have a banner made representing their agency and display it in their community during the month preceding the event raising awareness of their agency and of Bridge Bash. Along with their logo/name each agency banner would invite the people of their community to the Bridge Bash by saying “Stand for Hope with Us September 22nd!" On the day of the event the banners would hang across the Cotter Bridge so participants and the public realize the agencies served by the Food Bank of North Central Arkansas.
Musicians, dance troops, politicians, athletes, etc. volunteer their time and talent to entertain/speak during the event!
Sponsorships from local businesses and individuals cover the cost of the event. This means 100% of the monies raised during the event go directly to hunger relief. Sponsor’s will be highlighted as a part of the regular advertising campaign and recognized between performances from the main stage. A representative from the FBNCA would recognize the sponsors and ask them to come on stage to receive their certificate of appreciation.
