Bridge Bread Bakery hosting Annual Bread & Butter Gala

The nonprofit employs those experiencing homelessness get back on their feet and go toward a brighter future.

ST. LOUIS — Bridge Bread Bakery is a non-profit social enterprise in the city of St. Louis that employs individuals experiencing homelessness and provides them with marketable skills and reliable employment.

Bridge Bread Bakery will host its inaugural Bread & Butter Gala on Friday, October 13, 2023 in the Khorassan Room at The Chase Park Plaza Hotel. Wednesday morning, founder Fred Domke, shares they are not holding this fundraiser to keep going. They have enough income to sustain all our activities. They are hosting this fundraiser to keep growing. They intend to put the additional funds into new positions for Bakers (unhoused when they hire them) and their housing subsidies. They calculate that $10,000 in donations will enable them to hire a Baker who will receive about $25,000 in income – a 250% return on the donation and the Baker’s own hard work.

The fundraising event will include dinner and dancing, with music provided by Washington University, as well as a silent and live auction. Mary Caltrider, with Show Me St. Louis, will be the Master of Ceremonies.
