Dusk-to-Dawn plans fundraiser at Little Mexico

Irma Bravo and the staff of Little Mexico will host a day of family fun from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday. The local restaurant will offer a wide variety of traditional Mexican favorites and encourage the community to join them to support the work of Dusk-to-Dawn Bereavement Services.

Dusk-to-Dawn is a local nonprofit offering end-of-life and grief support to the Crawfordsville community and the surrounding areas. It provides emotional and social support, along with spiritual nurturing to guide families along the journey into and through grief.

Cheryl Fuhrmann, a certified bereavement facilitator, knows all too well the crippling pain that death can leave in its wake, having suffered through a tragic loss herself. Out of her own painful experience, she finds the strength to walk alongside others and support them through the pain of loss.

Grief affects us all, but unfortunately finding affordable help with grief can be difficult as it is typically not covered by Medicare, Medicaid or many insurances.

“We have a genuine desire to help others.” Fuhrmann said. “At Dusk-to-Dawn, we feel strongly that services be made available to anyone seeking help with loss, regardless of their ability to pay, and for this reason, we offer our services at no cost to our clients. Rather, our services are funded through donations, fundraising efforts, and grants.”

Fuhrmann admits, “This commitment at times stretches our faith, but God never fails to provide, and just as Jesus fed 5,000 with only two fish and five loaves, miraculous things still occur through the generosity of caring individuals working together in community.”

Dusk-to-Dawn is available 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday-Thursday and evenings by appointment in two locations, 300 W. South Blvd., Crawfordsville or 394 N. Mt. Zion Road, Lebanon.
