Bridge School is the brainchild of Pegi and Neil Young who co-created the organization to help kids, like their own, Ben, communicate through augmentative and alternative communication. Many kids who were previously institutionalized have attended Bridge School and gone on to graduate college, live independently, and speak using alternative forms of communication. The Young's raise money for Bridge School with an annual Benefit Concert- a weekend of music with artists like Eddie Vedder, Dave Matthews, Paul McCartney, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Tony Bennett, Ben Harper, Nora Jones, Elton John, Metallica.... and that's just to name a very view.

Hayes Valley Colors- A San Franciso Treat

A recent addition to the Hayes Valley scene is a Ben Eine's installation- a larger than life painting on the side of a building that reads Brighter Faster. The painting perfectly reflects the colors of this vibrant, optimistic, and eclectic San Francisco neighborhood. [caption id="attachment_1292" align="aligncenter" width="500" caption="Ben Eine, a commercial street artist from London, created this mural for San Francisco.
