The Silver Linings of CaringMatters!

Join us online from the comfort of your home,

Usually this time of the year, we are busy preparing for our annual fall event that brings us together and raises nearly 40% of our operating budget to support our important work. As we all know, 2020 is not a normal year. So we are changing our format to a virtual celebration. The event will look and feel different from years past, but it will be a memorable and inspirational event where we will unveil a special new project! With our virtual format and free admission, we anticipate more guests than ever before!


Funds raised at the 2020 Silver Linings Virtual Celebration will be used to expand the reach of our compassionate support to those in our community experiencing serious illness, loss and grief.  The need for our compassionate support services is increasing as adults, children and families in Montgomery County are confronting unprecedented challenges and complicated grief due to the pandemic. 



Thank you for your support at this critical time!

We look forward to "seeing" you to celebrate the Silver Linings!
