Thank you to those who joined us for Fiesta 2018. Nearly 300 Solidarity Bridge supporters came together as one for our annual fundraising gala. With the theme of Somos Uno in our hearts:

  • We celebrated missioners like Solidarity Award winner Dr. Gay Garrett, who work tirelessly to ensure that all patients, regardless of financial means or social standing, receive the life-saving surgery they need.
  • We previewed the PBS video that features our work in Bolivia.
  • We received generous donations to support the efforts of committed Bolivian partner surgeons like Dr. Jaime Vallejos, who spoke at the gathering.

Save the Date

Fiesta 2019 will be the 20th Anniversary Celebration of the mission of Solidarity Bridge. Join us on May 4, 2019 in Rosemont. More details to come.
