Susan Bridges to Be Honored at Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care Mother’s Day Luncheon

Philanthropist and noted photographer Susan Bridges will be honored (as Mother of the Year) at Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care’s 11th Annual Mother’s Day Luncheon on Friday, May 11, at the Four Seasons Resort the Biltmore Santa Barbara.


Bridges, the wife and partner of actor Jeff Bridges, will be honored by her daughters, Isabelle Boesch, Hayley Bridges and Jessie Bridges.

Known for her commitment to compassionate nonprofit groups in the Santa Barbara area, Bridges has been married to Jeff for 35 years. In that time she has established herself as a photographer with a keen eye on locations around the world. Bridges, who attended Art Center of Design and Cal Arts to study photography, is also a recognized expert in sophisticated hand-tinting of black and white photos.

This year’s Mother’s Day Luncheon holds to its traditional theme, “Honoring and Remember Our Mothers,” in which two Santa Barbara-area mothers will be honored. Frank Schipper, president and CEO of Frank Schipper Construction Co., will remember his mother, Annie Jacoba Schipper-Dooves.

A benefit for Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care, the luncheon includes a silent auction.
