On Aug. 5, Mary’s Place, A Center for Grieving Children and Families, hosted The Vineyard Mingle, the largest fundraising event of the year to benefit its important mission.

Held at the scenic Rosedale Farms and Vineyards in Simsbury, the Master of Ceremonies was Keisha Grant, anchor and on-air personality at NBC Connecticut. More than 100 guests enjoyed a beautiful evening featuring live blues music by Ryan Hartt and the Blue Hearts, a fabulous auction and delicious cuisine provided by Max Hospitality.

At Mary’s Place children find a safe haven to grieve with others who are experiencing the same sort of loss. Mary’s Place is a place of hope. It is a place where children and families find comfort and support, share their experiences, and realize that they are not alone.

Mary’s Place does not charge a fee for its services nor does it receive any state or federal funding. The center relies on donations and fundraising to continue to provide its services to the bereaved throughout Connecticut and Massachusetts. We need the support of the community now more than ever as the number of children and families we support continues to grow.
