Portland, OR. Over 550 community members gathered at the Portland Art Museum to support The Dougy Center at the 2018 Reflection Benefit & Auction presented by KinderCare Education. This year’s Reflection Benefit on May 11th raised over $900,000, which is more than any other event in The Dougy Center’s history. This night included a silent auction featuring one-of-a-kind art created by Dougy Center participating children and teens, an elegant dinner, a live auction, and a heartfelt testimonial from Alissa, Robbie, Madeline and Samantha Parker, a family who participates in The Dougy Center’s program which supports grieving children and families.

The Dougy Center 2018 Reflection Benefit and Raffle was Co-Chaired by Tim & Jennifer O’Brien and Michael & Brandy Horwitz, and raised over $900,000 for our program to support children, teens, young adults and their families grieving the death of a loved one, or those living with a family member with an advanced serious illness.
