More than 4,600 children in the Milwaukee area are at risk of going hungry on the weekends.

At Blessings in a Backpack – Waukesha County, they are working hard to “Bridge the Gap” from Friday afternoon to Monday morning, when federally subsidized meals for these children are not available.

Each year a fundraiser is held to raise money to purchase food for the children they serve. This year, the fundraiser called "Bridge the Gap Gala" will be held on Saturday, October 13, 2018 at The Ingleside Hotel (formerly the Country Springs) in Pewaukee.
