The power of place, permanence, and purpose.
2015 Spring Luncheon
On May 6th, Bridge Meadows excitedly welcomed more than 450 of our dear friends and family to the Multnomah Athletic Club for our 9th Annual Bridge Builder Spring Luncheon.
During the program, Executive Director Dr. Derenda Schubert described the incredible relationships built between our residents, special guest speaker Marc Freedman spoke eloquently of the need for purpose in the encore years of life, and our community celebrated the extraordinary work of Bridge Builder Award recipient Rhoni Wiswall, who shared her journey of love, service, and legacy with the belief that one person can absolutely make a difference in this world.
Thank you to all our sponsors and guests who supported our community with their incredible generosity and steadfast belief in the power of place, permanence and purpose. The incredible turnout from this packed event will help ensure the continual growth of Bridge Meadows and propel forward this intergenerational model that is proven to change lives.
