Once Upon A Time

Thank you for being a part of the 2022 Evening Of Hope. We will update this page with the 2023 Event Information soon.

Once upon a time a girl with moonlight in her eyes
Put her hand in mine and said she loved me so
But that was once upon a time very long ago.

~ Frank Sinatra

Bri’s Lodge, a program of What Would Bri Do, is looking forward to our annual Evening of Hope gala and fundraiser on April 23, 2022. The theme for the evening will be “Once Upon a Time.” Bri’s Lodge is a local non-profit committed to helping individuals cope with loss, support their healing, nurture physical and emotional well-being and bring hope for the future, believing that no one should grieve alone. Bri’s Lodge is committed to building a healing lodge in Central, MN. This space will be a weekend retreat center for individuals and families in similar situations to gather and begin to heal after a loss. Currently, Bri’s Lodge is launching our new companioning programming model. This will include three types of support. The first, is to continue our 1:1 Companioning, the second is to initiate
our support groups starting with our Young Widows Group and lastly, we will implement a retreat program that will include day and weekend retreats. To reach this milestone, we need caring individuals, families, and businesses committed to supporting our neighbors, friends, and community through times of loss. With your help, we can create a safe space so that no one in Central MN grieves alone.
