Boardroom’s very own account executive, Jami Baker, recently joined The Children’s Bereavement Center’s Young Leaders Board. Last Friday they raised over $5,000 at their most recent fundraising event. About 300 people attended to taste desserts from STK and have drinks provided by Wodka Vodka, Mar Azul Tequila and Crown Wine and Spirits at Coco de Ville in the Ganesvort hotel.
The Children’s Bereavement Center (CBC) provides peer support groups for children, teens and young adults who are grieving the death of a loved one. Proceeds from the event will directly sponsor five children to attend the CBC for a full year.
“The Young Leaders have gone above and beyond our expectations and created an incredible event,” said Mindy Cassel, Ph.D. and Executive Director of the CBC. “We are so lucky to have a board of dedicated and enthusiastic young leaders.”
The CBC promotes the principles supported by research that grieving is a normal, natural process and that people have the ability to heal from their loss at their own unique pace and in their own style.
“We are so excited about the success of this party,” said Lauren Zuckerman, Chair of the event. “Our goal is to spread the word and really gain visibility in the community; we are looking forward to having more great events like this one.”
