Building bridges from treatment to lifelong sobrietyTo The Bridge Foundation (TTBF) began in 2012 with a benefit concert to honor a man who was a friend to everyone he met, and who lost his battle with addiction at a young age. Tony Dolski’s passion for music and life has inspired his friends and family to do what he wanted most: to help others. For the past several years, TTBF has hosted an annual benefit concert, which combined have raised funds for organizations with successful sober housing programs. We believe the critical transition from treatment to lifelong sobriety is one of the biggest barriers in recovery. Proceeds from each concert, as well as the foundation’s other fundraising efforts, are specifically designated to cover costs for individuals who do not have the money to begin a sober housing program upon acceptance. We provide funds to help with necessities such as rent, insurance, psychiatric care, transportation, dental care and other basic needs. Our goal is to help individuals continue recovery in a supportive environment rather than become vulnerable by returning to previous circumstances.
To The Bridge Foundation is proud to be the charity of choice for Robb Papas in the 3rd Annual “Live To Give” Charity Competition inspired by the hit reality television series “Survivor”. Competitors are raising money for 21 different charities! Event is hosted by the Rogers Lions Club & Brandon Nelson.
From Robb Papas: “Anyone who knows me knows that I absolutely love the show and game of Survivor! I fell in love with it while finding myself in my journey into sobriety. I’m beyond excited to announce that I get the chance to actually play the game this summer for charity! The charity I’m representing is The To The Bridge Foundation which was created in honor of a high school classmate of mine an absolutely amazing dude Tony Dolski who lost his battle with addiction at a very young age. Unfortunately I have lost a lot of friends at the hands of addiction. The To The Bridge Foundation helps support organizations and people just like Tony and my friends who are lost and desperately need guidance with the critical transition from treatment into the real world. This transition I have found is typically one of the biggest barriers in recovery and I’m beyond thrilled to represent such an awesome charity.
I need help raising money for my charity and for the game! 50% of the money I raise pre game goes towards my charity and 50% of all the rest of the contestants money raised goes towards a final pot that we will all be competing for!
