8th Annual Bridging The Gap Celebration
Thank You For "Attending"!
On June 5th, 2020, we held our very first virtual fundraising event to commemorate the 8th Annual Bridging The Gap Celebration!
The night kicked off with our special VIP Zoom Room, where VIP donors had the opportunity to meet and mingle with AISS scholars. What followed was nothing short of extraordinary, as we held our first ever Facebook Livestream alongside comedian Ernie G and California Coast Auctioneer, Vinny Zapien. These two did an amazing job introducing the scholars’ special project videos and helping us raise over $25,000!
These funds will be crucial for our Class of 2021, as we are already in our summer session. Classes remain, albeit via Zoom, and we have intensive college prep planned with AISS alumni, virtual campus tours, and virtual lab tours and seminars from our sponsors at Edwards Lifesciences.
We want to give a special thanks to OC Biz for helping facilitate and hosting our livestream, as well as our main event sponsor Edwards Lifesciences. Thank you also to Design & Print Resources, Inc., NPI Services, Tera Engineering Co., The Little Flower Pot, Dr. Jackie Rojas, and Modern Woodmen of America for their sponsorship and continued support.
And most of all, we want to thank YOU for continuing to support AISS and our Class of 2021. Though times are uncertain in a lot of ways, we are reminded of the power of community and remain excited for what's to come for this group of scholars! Miss our livestream? No problem, watch it here.
