Annual Papa Gino's Fundraiser!

Join the Empty Arms' community for our annual Papa Gino's Fundraiser

WHEN: Thursday, February 25th from 4 to 9 pm
WHERE: Papa Gino's, 301 King Street, Northampton, MA
WHAT TO DO: Join us at Papa Gino's, or order delivery. Simply hand the cashier this flyer, or tell them you're with us. Papa Gino's will give 20% of the proceeds from the night to Empty Arms!! 

This fundraiser is also one of the beautiful ways we gather together -- share food, meet new friends, and build community.

Please note: Children and family members are welcome. Those who are newly bereaved should come knowing that any little ones who are present are those who are the siblings of those who are not with us. We hope that will make the experience seem manageable. Please drop us a note, if you'd like to talk about the event ahead of time -- or know what to expect. 

We hope you can make it!
Carol, Beth, and the Empty Arms Team
