7th Annual 

Thursday, May 13, 2021

Than you for joining us to celebrate the connections of the CaringMatters community and enjoy a musical performance by award-winning jazz pianist, singer-songwriter, music director, & educator, Mark G. Meadows.

We look forward to celebrating with you in-person next year!

During our live Raise Your Glass program, we featured two of our clients, Gilda and Michelle, whose families have participated in our Children's Bereavement Support programs, including Good Grief Clubs, Family Nights and our Parenting While Grieving Online Workshop. We are grateful that they shared their stories and proud to have them in our CaringMatters family. Their strength and grace inspires us to continue working diligently to reach families in our community in need of compassionate support. View their stories from the program below.

Co-Chairs: Jeffrey Z. Slavin & Theresa Testoni

Acclaimed jazz composer, pianist, music director, vocalist, jazz instructor, & actor, Mark G. Meadows performed during our 7th Annual Raise Your Glass program. Mr. Meadows is a man on a mission: to create a unifying sound that breaks through social barriers. There’s something for everyone in his music, which harmonizes pop, gospel, R&B, hip hop, funk, and jazz. With his lyrics, suffused with meaning, and his velvet voice, Meadows cuts through the noise to speak to all. Debonair on the stage, he is an entertainer of the highest caliber.
