Come kick off the holiday season at The Bridge Teen Center for a night like no other. First, let your taste buds dance with delight as you try food samples from White Castle. Then, get ready for an interactive challenge that will test your senses and intuition. In the “What’s In The Box: Thanksgiving Edition”, you’ll have the chance to feel and guess the contents of the box. Could it be a pilgrim hat? Turkey feathers? Pecan pie? Or Something else? You’ll have to come and find out! This is the perfect opportunity to celebrate friendship and gratitude in a unique and unforgettable way. It’s a Friendsgiving celebration for new and current Bridge friends - see you there!
