The Sharing Place’s Day of the Dead is not your average fundraising gala. Guests have the opportunity to get sugar skull face paint, visit psychic readers, honor a loved one at our memorial altar, and enjoy a delicious dinner from Red Iguana. This unique event is a celebration of life and remembrance as much as a fundraiser. And, the best part is all funds from sponsorships, ticket sales, and activities will benefit grief groups at The Sharing Place and in the community.
This year’s event also comes at a critical time for The Sharing Place, as we look toward expanding our program into new local communities with the help of an additional location or locations. There are consistently over 100 grieving families on our waiting list at any given time, and we believe it is our duty to support those families through their grief and to make grief support groups accessible to all those in need. Statistics show as many as 1 in 16 children in the state of Utah will lose a parent before age 18 and expanding The Sharing Place will ensure none of these children will have to deal with grief and growing up alone.
