BABUF: BRIDGES ACROSS BORDERS STUDENT GROUP

yardsale2BRIDGES ACROSS BORDERS is very excited to announce the creation of a new BAB Student Group at the University of Florida in Gainesville. After a year of paperwork and headache, BABUF has finally become official on campus! Complete with four officers and a growing base of members, BABUF is quickly becoming well-known on the UF campus as well as in the community. But even though the process of becoming official was long, it didn’t take them long to get into the swing of things! They have already put on two yard sale FUNdraisers and played an integral part in planning and working our 2nd Annual Viva La Mujer event! (More about BABUF)

VIVA LA MUJER: HONORING THE STRENGTH OF WOMEN

100_4843Every year, BRIDGES holds an annual Viva La Mujer: Honoring the Strength of Women event in Gainesville, Florida. VLM is an event that takes pride in honoring the strength of women through a variety of creative and artistic means. We have had several amazing bands, poets, and other various artists perform at the event. It is a fun and fabulous fundraiser and is also a very successful way of letting people know about the work we do! It is wonderful to interact with our local community and connect with other organizations that have similar missions and goals. We hope you will join us later this year for VLM3!
