Bridge Builders of Alabama 
Annual fundraiser


Bridge Builders of Alabama hosts our annual fundraiser each year to raise funds to further our mission. The mission of BBAL is to develop among high school students a group of future leaders who can lay aside individual differences, social, cultural and economic differences and work for the benefit of all.


The Bridge Builders program is entirely scholarship based with no cost to our students, and we depend entirely on the generous support of community leaders and grants, as well as the success of our annual Win a Wine Cellar event, to continue that practice.


All proceeds go to our program, and we’re counting on your support to provide our students with the tools to be the catalysts of change in our community. The event is held every year in November (the exact date will be announced next Fall).


There are four sponsorship levels - Column Sponsor ($500), Pillar Sponsor ($750), Keystone Sponsor ($1,000), and Tower Sponsor ($2,500) as well as normal tickets that are for sale. We sincerely hope that you will consider donating to our cause and join us in making our event a success.
