The United Steel Bridge Club of City College of New York designs and constructs a bridge each year within the constraints of the ASCE National Steel Bridge Competition Guidelines. The United Steel Bridge Club of City College of New York would like to request your assistance in financially supporting our organization. The team is trying to fundraise $20,000 to be used toward fabricating the bridge and hosting the annual competition. This amount does not completely cover our annual costs, for which we are reaching out to sponsors, however your contribution will be greatly appreciated.
Your support will help the USBC Team represent their program at regionals at City College of New York on April 9th,2016. Going to regionals will provide the team members the experience needed for the program to grow and improve.
