Host an Event

No fundraising idea is too big or too small to make a lasting impact on grieving families.

You can honor a child while supporting Faith’s Lodge families by hosting a personal fundraising event. Your gifts will directly benefit parents and families coping with the death or medically complex condition of a child who come to Faith’s Lodge. We encourage you to get your community involved. Invite family, friends and neighbors to help ensure a successful fundraiser.

“When we lost our baby Sophia in July 2009, our journey towards healing began at Faith’s Lodge. As a result, we felt compelled to not only honor our daughter in a special way, but to also support the very place that has helped us through the most difficult time in our lives.”

– Dan & Alli Lenmark, Swing for Sophia Memorial Golf Tournament
