BRIDGE SCHOOL co-founder PEGI YOUNG and Executive Director DR.

The funds raised by this benefit have allowed us to have a positive impact on children, families and professionals throughout the world."
The DVD and CD packages will be released just after this year’s BRIDGE SCHOOL BENEFIT CONCERTS, which will held at the SHORELINE AMPHITHEATRE in MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA, on OCTOBER 22nd and 23rd. (see previous story)
