Special Event Benefiting Our Community’s Children

On Friday, Oct. 14, The Elizabeth Hospice will host MOTOWN DOWNTOWN, a special event benefiting the Children’s Bereavement Program from The Elizabeth Hospice. The evening will include a gourmet dinner, wine and a live musical performance by Remembrance 5, a Temptations Tribute group. Motown Downtown will be held at Escondido City Hall, 201 N. Broadway, Escondido, at the fountain, from 6:30 to 9:30 pm. There will be a silent and live auction. Everyone in the community (21 years or older) is invited to attend. The cost per person is $175.

Caring for our community’s children is key to The Elizabeth Hospice’s mission. One in five children will experience the death of someone significant in their life before they reach the age of 18. Without grief support, children are at higher-than-average risk for problems in school, substance abuse, depression and anxiety.

The Elizabeth Hospice’s Children’s Bereavement Program is the only one of its kind in San Diego County and Southwest Riverside County. The program includes school-based grief support groups in 20 school districts, peer-based grief support groups held throughout the school year in Children’s Bereavement Centers in Escondido and Mission Valley, summer grief camp, and community grief education and support. Services are free of charge, and everyone is welcome to participate.
