Uplift’s grief support programs ensure that over 2,500 children and families in Philadelphia will not have to grieve alone. At an UPLIFTing evening, Uplift brings together supporters and friends for a fun and impactful evening that has become our signature fundraising event.

This year’s gala will honor William (Bill) P. Hankowsky, Former Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer of Liberty Property Trust and Laura Hinds, MSW of Hindsight Consulting Group. We’re also excited to welcome WHYY news anchor and journalist Cherri Gregg, Esq. as our event host.

The program for an UPLIFTing evening 2022 includes both an in-person dinner at Vie by Cescaphe and a free online livestream of the honoree recognition ceremony. An online auction and raffle round out the evening’s festivities!
