“I’m sobbing, [this is] the best virtual fundraiser I have seen!” That is what one Lucy’s Hearth supporter said at the annual Live from Lucy’s event last night, where the community came together to raise money and awareness for Lucy’s Hearth, the only homeless shelter providing private apartments for families as they get back on their feet.
The event was hosted with so much love by actress Rose Weaver who showcased the “groundbreaking work” Lucy’s Hearth is doing and the impact that support from people like you has on those who live there. The event truly made you think about how nothing can be taken for granted – homelessness can happen to anyone.
One child living at Lucy’s, CeeCee, tugged at the heartstrings of all the attendees, and made everyone fall in love with her. CeeCee has so many dreams, and Lucy’s Hearth is providing her family the resources to make these dreams possible. One attendee in the chat raved about it. “Salve president honoree and children discussion was hilarious. So clever. Nice injection of humor with reality of life through a child’s eyes.”
