Last week we hosted a fundraising event at our Aventura showroom in support of the Children’s Bereavement Center, one of the charities we hold close to our hearts. We were able to raise a significant amount of funds to help the CBC in their efforts to provide free peer support to those who have lost a loved one.
Congratulations to Luis Rojas of Stanbul construction who was the winner of the signed Hope piece by Robert Indiana! Thank you to everyone who came out to the Aventura showroom, and for everyone we missed we hope to see you next time!
About the CBC: The Children’s Bereavement Center provides Peer Support Groups for children, teens and young adults (elementary through college age), as well as adult caregivers who are grieving the death of a loved one. Groups are open to anyone who has lost a loved one as a result of illness, accident, suicide, or homicide. Losses can be recent or in years past.
Concurrent education and peer support groups are provided for parents, caregivers, and any other adult who plays a significant role in the child’s life. These groups enable adults to better understand the bereavement process through the eyes of their children as well as offering an opportunity to share their own experiences and help normalize the experience for themselves and their family.
CBC Peer Support Groups allow Participants to gain a better understanding of their own experience and learn to empathize with one another, contributing to self-esteem, trust and hope for the future.
