Music Brings Hope for Faith’s Lodge
On Friday, March 22nd, a crowd of Faith’s Lodge supporters gathered at the Fine Line Music Café for Hope Thrives, an evening dedicated to celebrating this amazing non-profit organization and the important resources it provides for families who are facing the serious illness or death of a child. While the Ben Johnson Band raised the roof, Faith’s Lodge raised money – $3500, to be exact – that will go towards helping families who need the healing and restorative powers of this space in Danbury, Wisconsin.
Faith’s Lodge and PHS have been longtime partners, and a lot of events and opportunities that we’ve participated in together have been featured on this blog. We see such a strong connection between what they do and what we do – bringing care to families with a medically-complex child. Whether that is medical or emotional, a more complete circle of care is provided when Faith’s Lodge and PHS are involved – and that means the best outcomes for the families and the patients.
With all of this in mind, we were happy to present this evening of music, dance and reflection for an organization whose mission we see as such a crucial service for families as they navigate the ups and downs of dealing with a complex medical condition. Guests watched a video that told the stories of families who had been impacted by Faith’s Lodge firsthand, a touching piece you can see here, between sets by the band. Everyone had a great time cutting a rug, and it was all for a wonderful cause that will have a meaningful impact on those who need Faith’s Lodge for retreat and reflection in the future.
Have you or someone you know been impacted by Faith’s Lodge? We’d love to hear about your time there.Originally published: April 5, 2013
