GGaV Family Weekend & Fundraising Luncheon

Buzzy’s Bees will be hosting several gatherings for our Give Grief a Voice participant families over the weekend of Sept 13-14, 2024. This weekend is designed to provide a meaningful connection and time for healing that comes from being in community with other bereaved parents. All program alumni families are invited to a bonfire and brews night for the dads on Friday and a brunch for the mothers on Saturday. On Saturday evening there are seven new families who will be receiving their art. GGaV artists, writers, alumni families, committee volunteers, Buzzy’s board members, and a handful of invited guests will join the intimate evening. However, this year, we are not going to open this event up to our general audience. 

Our donors and supporters are, however, invited to attend a fundraising luncheon on Friday, October 25 in downtown Portland. Please save the date and make a plan to join us as we share how our programs have touched the lives of bereaved families. Bring a friend or colleague who you think might be interested in learning more about and supporting our mission. There will be no cost to attend, but a fundraising ask will be made. If you are interested in attending this luncheon, hosting a table of attendees, or sponsoring an element of the event, please reach out to
