June 23rd - the bridge is going up!


Please Come Watch With Us!

On Saturday, June 23, from 8 to 10:30 p.m., we plan to watch and cheer as Sister Berta and Sister Corita’s dream becomes a reality. Two giant cranes will install the covered bridge across Troost Avenue, connecting our two Operation Breakthrough buildings. This will visually symbolize the work we do every day to create opportunity for children in our great city.  Thanks to the hard work and generosity of so many, the bridge is a crowning achievement in a year-long expansion project that will allow us to serve 290 more children and keep them engaged to age 14.

Please bring a lawn chair, your family and join us for an exciting Bridge Watch Party. Celebration will be held in our main parking lot with music, ice cream and popcorn. Parking available on far north OB parking lot, lower level of current OB parking lot, church parking lot on Forest, Kansas City Public School parking lot west side of Troost before 30th St. and of course on the street. Go around “closed to through traffic” sign at 29th and Troost to get to the parking lots. The map below shows the street closures. In the event of inclement weather, installation may be postponed — so please check the home page of our website or our Facebook page for confirmation.

We look forward to seeing you on June 23 to celebrate a Bridge to a Brighter Future!
