Rockin' on the Green 2019

Rockin' on the Green 2019

At this year's Rockin' on the Green, the Children's Bereavement Center celebrated 20 years of serving our South Florida community with FREE grief support services. Each year, the Children's Bereavement Center touches the hearts of over 1,500 participants across 10 site locations in Miami-Dade County, Broward County and Palm Beach County.

With the help of our friends and supporters over the past 20 years, the CBC has empowered children, teens, adults, parents and caregivers to build resilience and hope after the loss of a loved one. 

This year, we were joined by 500 of our most committed supporters at the University of Miami's Donna E. Shalala Student Center. This awe-inspiring night included a gourmet dinner, live and silent auction, and incredible music and dancing.  

Our guests heard the stories of three CBC participants; Desna Johnson, who lost her baby brother, mother and grandmother in a tragic car accident when she was only 8 years old, Sergio Mendoza, who lost beloved his wife and his cherished sister, and Max Schatcher, who lost his wife in 2008 and his son in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas school shooting in 2018. 

Rockin' on the Green Emcee and ABC News Correspondent, Victor Oquendo, also shared his story of losing his father to a heart attack when he was only 15 years old and the impact that had on his life. 

This incredible night was finished off with a candle lighting memorial, honoring the lives of friends and family members who have passed away as well as the 17 lives lost in Parkland, Florida on February 14, 2018. 

We're extremely grateful for the support that our Rockin' on the Green sponsors showed this year. We'd like to thank each of these amazing companies and organizations who are committed to helping those in our community who are struggling with the loss of a loved one.
