Bridges Prep School holds first fundraiser

Bridges Preparatory School is proud to host its first annual fundraising event, Bridges Block Party, an all-inclusive event featuring Beaufort’s only Shrimp & Grits Cook-Off on Saturday, April 5, from noon to 9 p.m. at Habersham Marketplace.

Families can stroll the marketplace shopping handpicked products from artisan vendors featuring home and kitchen goods. Kids of all ages can take a tour through the Kid Zone, which full of hands-on interactive activities including corn shucking, shrimp peeling, grits touch and feel station and many more. For the thrill-seeker in the family, there will be a rock climbing wall, bungee jump and dunk tank.

This event will encourage families to get out doors, be active, and enjoy a Saturday together. All proceeds benefit Bridges Preparatory School. From activities to food to home decor, the school hopes families will join them in supporting the community and the next generation.

Bridges Block Party is open to the public with free admission. Attendees have the opportunity to purchase a Shrimp & Grits ballot for $15 which grants them entry into the judging tent and samples from each of the competitors. Additional Shrimp & Grits plates can be purchased from the chefs for $4 as part of the “People’s Choice” judging. Activity tickets are $1 per ticket, with activities costing between 1 and 5 tickets each. Beer will be on site for adults to enjoy and local food vendors will present their best menu.
