FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne's NBC) - Erin's House for Grieving Children hosted the 2020 Common Bond event and raised nearly $60,000 for their organization.
On July 30, Roberto Clemente Jr. hosted the event at Parkview Field to practice social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“As the final donations are coming in, we are pleased to share that we have raised nearly $60,000 towards the mission. We can’t thank Roberto enough for his vulnerability in sharing his grief journey with us.”Debbie Meyer, Executive Director of Erin’s House for Grieving Children
One guest described the evening simply as “incredibly moving.” Another guest noted, “Roberto provided great insight and inspiration.”
The proceeds from the event enable Erin’s House to provide support services for children, teens, and their families who have experienced the death of a loved one. With ongoing community support, Erin’s House can continue its programs at no cost to participants.
The organization also announced their annual Healing Hearts Volunteer Award recipients as all 200 volunteers for rising up during such uncertain times when the COVID-19 pandemic hit.
