Fundraiser to be held for Grief Center of NM

The 17th annual Healing Hearts Event and Silent Auction to benefit the Grief Center of New Mexico will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Feb. 3 at the Embassy Suites Hotel, 1000 Woodward NE.

The Grief Center of New Mexico provides New Mexico children, their families and bereaved adults with more than 50 free support groups each month to 450 individuals. It costs approximately $750 to support a bereaved individual for a year of services and the Healing Hearts Event and Silent Auction is the organization’s largest annual fundraiser.

This year’s goal is to raise $130,000, said Grief Center development director Suzie Blake.

“This heart warming luncheon includes a silent auction with some amazing trips offered through Amfund, as well as the opportunity to have donations matched up to $25,000 with a gift from Southwest Family Guidance Center,” Blake said. “It is a wonderful way to support those who are in their darkest time, providing them with hope and healing.”

New Mexico ranks second in the nation for the number of children who will experience the death of a parent or sibling, said Grief Center Executive Director Jade Richardson Bock. The center is a safe place for them “to share and connect with others going through the same emotional journey,” she said, adding that “the support we receive at Healing Hearts makes a big impact in allowing us to provide these services at no cost to the families.”

Registration and individual tickets, starting at $125, are available at griefnm.org/healinghearts2023. The online auction for bidding will open at midnight Friday and close at 11:59 a.m. Feb. 4.
