About Building Bridges

Building Bridges Benefit has successfully brought together a small community in Texas in efforts to build a single dad battling cancer and his daughter a new home. It was a promise made by Randy to his daughter Millie and we intend to help him keep his promise.

Randy Bridges is battling Multiple Myeloma, a cancer that attacks the plasma cells in bone marrow. It was no surprise that he had it. He just thought he had already beaten it. We are all rooting him on for another successful treatment and many, many more years to spend with friends and family frying catfish, enjoying crawfish and living out on the Attoyac.

We are raising money for the house as well as anything anything extra to take the financial burden away and allow Randy to get treatment and have a relaxing and stress free experience as much as possible. We are raising money through fundraisers such as our Brown Bag Lunch Event, Crawfish Boil, and other events in the making. We are also selling t-shirts and cookbooks in efforts to raise enough funds to break ground on their home as soon as possible.

Building Bridges Benefit was featured on KTRE news on March 11, 2013 and ever since its airing, support has poured out of every corner of Texas. This experience has humbled me tremendously and I look forward to seeing this project through till the end. I want to thank everybody for their amazing support both for Randy and Millie and also to Building Bridges Benefit. I will be posting many updates and pictures as we go along. God bless.

  1. I am amazed by the generosity of, friends, acquaintances & people I don't even know! Building Bridges is appropriately named, and for more than just the obvious, which is our last name. To build a bridge must start with 1 stone or 1 piece of lumber and then with many more pieces or stones, a bridge is built...Danielle is 1 person who had a desire to help, & now it's going to happen because of her determination & others just like her. I'm excited for my brother & my niece, and we have renewed hope for his future. God knew just what we needed and provided......
