Thanks to our amazing community of Judi’s House fans, friends, and partners our first-ever Virtual Tailgate, held Aug. 12, 2020, was a huge success raising nearly $134,000 in support of grieving children and families. In lieu of our in-person Happy Hour in the Garden event, attendees enjoyed tailgate food and drink from 10 Barrel Brewing Company Denver, a live Q&A with former Judi’s House clients Bria and Deneen Stone, a special halftime show performance by the Freddy Jones Band, and a chat about all things football with special guest and Monday Night Football Analysts Steve Levy. A true touchdown for Judi’s House!

#UnitedinGrief Candelight Tribute
Grief waits for no one. On May 15, 2020, at the height of the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, people across the country came together to shine a light on those grieving. In partnership with the National Alliance for Grieving Children (NAGC), this event offered those grieving a chance to honor the memory of their special person by coloring a candle in honor of someone they have lost and sharing their story through our national #UnitedinGrief social campaign.
This video captures some of the beautiful tributes from the day. We look forward to continuing this tradition with NAGC.
Happy Hour in the Garden
With our friends at the Downtown Denver Partnership, we hosted our second annual Happy Hour in the Garden in the beautiful Judi’s House garden in August 2019. Tickets included a tour of Judi’s House with our grief experts, delicious food and drinks, prize drawings, and an intimate Q&A with Co-Founder Brian Griese and ESPN’s Steve Levy. This annual event raised over $8,000 towards our mission.
We look forward to bringing the community back to Judi’s House and hosting events when it is safe to do so.
