I’m so excited to be taking part in this fundraiser in support of the Center for Grieving Children (The Center) located in Portland, Maine - an organization on which I'm honored to volunteer on the Board. I was introduced to The Center by a neighbor who previously served on the Board and was impressed by the incredible service they provide (at no cost!!) to families with children that are struggling with grief (e.g., a parent, sibling, etc. has passed away or is suffering from a serious illness).
The Center’s largest fundraiser, by far, is an annual Auction and Dinner at Thompson’s Point in Portland. My wife and I have been to this function the last three years and it is quite the shindig with approx. 700 attendees. Unfortunately, as a result of the pandemic the "Love Gala" will be virtual in 2021 but the staff has done an excellent job in preparing a great program for the evening of February 5th. I'd like to invite you to attend the Virtual Gala and/or support the services The Center provides by donating. The tickets to the in person Love Gala are normally $150 but any donation of any amount would be greatly appreciated.
All the money raised on this page will go directly to The Center, where the funds will be used directly to help further their mission and raise awareness for their cause. For more information about The Center, you can visit their website here (www.cgcmaine.org).
