The Inaugural Judi’s House Speakers Series Luncheon, “Strength in the Face of Adversity,” featuring NFL legends Archie Manning and Bob Griese, far exceeded all of our expectations. In addition to increasing awareness about childhood bereavement, we raised more than $1 million, and we are grateful for the generous support of our community.
We are appreciative for the incredible response we received, including the 700 guests who attended, the show of support in donations, and the amazing sponsors who helped us pioneer this event. We are especially grateful to our event chairs, Hassan Salem and Mimi Roberson and our Healing Hand Award recipients and honorees Sharon Magness Blake and Ernie Blake. Special thanks to our Title Sponsor, Land Title Guarantee Company, and our Legend Sponsors, Beverage Distributors Co LLC, Greenberg Traurig, and US Bank.
This event was overwhelmingly successful in large part due to the generous matches that we were able to leverage, including a $100,000 gift from the Salah Foundation.
The funds raised at the event will significantly expand our capacity to promote healthy adjustment in grieving children and families in our community and beyond.
Brian and Brook Griese
