The Children’s Bereavement Center of South Texas (CBCST), closing in on its 22nd anniversary this upcoming May, held its 18th annual Hearts in Harmony Gala this past February 28th, offering guests both a lovely dinner and a truly colossal auction made possible by dozens of sponsors and more than 150 generous donors.

With none other than Mayor Ron Nirenberg and wife Erika Prosper Nirenberg serving as the guests of honor alongside guest speaker Shannon Turner, participants dined on braised short ribs from the RK Group before bidding on items that ranged from local gift certificates to one-of-a-kind art pieces to a weeklong stay at a Cinnamon Shore beach house in Port Aransas. Those wishing to participate but a little short on extra spending money also got the opportunity to sponsor one of the many children the CBCST works with.

As the name implies, the Bereavement Center works to help children through grief, complete with a multitude of specialized services for specific cases. Loss at a young age can snowball into misery down the line, and the help the CBCST staff offers can be literally life-saving. It gaining support from so many places and from such prominent figures is something to pin on your wall and look at whenever the world feels cold.
