It was a picture perfect day for volunteers and participants alike as they took part in the Bridges Preparatory School’s Block Party featuring a Shrimp and Grits cook-off at Southside Park. The fundraising event for the school also had live music from Night Train, face painting, rock climbing and a corn hole tournament. Patrick and Mandi Haney said their daughter goes to Bridges and they couldn’t be happier. “We love it. She gets the one-on-one, individualized instruction she needs”, they said. “All the children get very focused attention. That is why we are happy to contribute in any way we can”.
