Thank You Picture This Supporters!


What a great evening!


The Good Grief Center for Bereavement Support celebrated its 5th Anniversary on Thursday, September 21st with a fundraiser at the Andy Warhol Museum. The event featured a silent auction with over 50 frames decorated by local and national celebrities and over 50-matted photographs from local and national photographers, including several Pulitzer Prize winners. Guests grooved to Dr. Vinnie Vegas, dined on fine appetizers and sipped martha-tinis in honor of Martha Perry, retiring Associate Executive Director of the McCune Foundation.


The event was sponsored by, Dollar Bank, Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield, Lamar Advertising, Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney PC, Complete Energy Holdings, LLC Dewey & Kaye, A McCrory & McDowell Company, Gibson Capital Management, Ltd., Jewish Healthcare Foundation, Reed Smith LLP., The Elmhurst Group, big Catering, Daley's, Dreadnought Imports, LTD, Forward Lithography, Korkey Noah Kibbey Design, MCM Communications, Inc., Penn Brewery, Sir Speedy Printing, & Vital Signs.


With in-kind donations totaling more than $35,000, free local media worth $38,000, and a net-profit of more than $69,000, the event was a success with more than 400 attendees, including politicos, on a busy Thursday night.


Anniversaries are a time to celebrate the past and look to the future. We are proud to be the region's only comprehensive bereavement support center. Without a doubt, it has been an honor and a privilege to have supported over 8,000 people. While this celebration reflected on lives touched in those five years, it also paves the way for this much needed work to continue.


We sincerely thank you for your support and look forward to another 5 years.

Sincerely,

 

Lulu Orr
Executive Director
