Be a Friend
There is always an opportunity to volunteer at The Bridge Line. From being a friend to one of our residents which includes providing assistance and friendship to members within our program by reading, playing board games, having a coffee with them and making them smile!

Lead a Game Night
One of our favorite social activities is to have a “game night” with several of our friends. We do this on a regular basis, with roughly one “game night” happening per month. For us, it’s a social highlight – it provides great social interaction, a fun evening with old and new friends, and some great thought-provoking game play. We have a variety of games available (pictionary, monopoly etc..) or you can bring your own! So set up a day, we’ll buy the pizza, you lead the game! If you’re looking for an evening with new friends that’s rich in social interaction, look no further!

Guest Chef for a Dinner
If you love to cook come join us! We promise an evening full of fun and friendship. Our Guest Chef for a Dinner Program is a volunteer opportunity that all residents of Building Bridges love. Come to one of our homes and show off your cooking skills. We have had guest chefs come from as near as Charlottesville and as far as Germany! A Guest Chef enriches our evening with great fun and excellent food. We’d love to have you!

What A Great Comedy Night!

“There is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humor.”
― Charles Dickens

Last Saturday we had our 3rd Comedy Night! We also had a surprise comedian open up, which was a real treat. It was a full house, which was filled to the brim with laughter. We are so grateful to have so many wonderful supporters!

A huge THANK YOU to the wonderful comedians Bill Russ, Tom Holaday and Beatty Barnes for such a fun night! THANK YOU to everyone who came out and laughed with us! We have such wonderful supporters!

And last but not least THANK YOU to Toan Nguyen of Cville Coffee for hosting us, videographer Jim Peterson and to our board of directors for underwriting the entire event and to our wonderful event committee for putting the evening together. What a fun night! We look forward to planning the next event!
