Bridge of Books Foundation 10th Anniversary Fundraiser

Buona Sera Restaurant

50 Maple Avenue
Red Bank, NJ 07701

The Bridge of Books Foundation (BoB) will celebrate their 10th Anniversary of bringing the world to children through books with A DECADE OF DONATIONS on Thursday, April 11, from 6:30 to 9:30pm. The fundraising event will take place at Buona Sera Restaurant, 50 Maple Avenue, in Red Bank. "It seems like just yesterday that we delivered our very first donation of children's books to the Red Bank office of the NJ Division of Youth and Family Services," said Bridge of Books Foundation Founder and Executive Director Abby Daly. "To date, we have donated over 325,000 books to at-risk children through the state! We're continuing to write our next chapter, expanding our Board, implementing new programs, adding staff and responding to the overwhelming devastation of Hurricane Sandy with the healing power of books. " A DECADE OF DONATIONS will honor three individuals who have been outstanding supporters of the Bridge of Books Foundation over its first ten years. Stacey Tietjen of Red Bank Self Storage has generously donated storage space for the Bridge of Books Foundation for 10 years, saving the foundation many thousands of dollars in storage fees and largely making the Foundation's work possible. William Van Winkle of Van Winkle Associates has been a strong advocate for BoB for many years, providing assistance in securing BoB's first grant and then securing yearly financial support through New York Life. Kyra Citron of the Charles Lafitte Foundation (CLF) is an active supporter of the BoB Foundation. CLF supports innovative and effective ways of helping people help themselves and others around them to achieve healthy, satisfying and enriched lives. The Foundation supports organizations working in four main areas, including education and children's advocacy. The DECADE OF DONATIONS event will feature appetizers, desserts, wine, beer and an "Oliver Twist" specialty cocktail for attendees. Proceeds from the DECADE OF DONATIONS event will assist the Bridge of Books Foundation in providing an ongoing source of gently used and new books to underprivileged and at-risk children throughout New Jersey in order to support literacy skills and to encourage a love of reading. Tickets to A DECADE OF DONATIONS can be reserved for $75 per ticket, on-line at or by mailing a check made out to Bridge of Books Foundation to BoB, P.O. Box 39, Rumson, NJ 07760.
