As we embark on our theme of “Empowering Family Caregivers Through All Seasons” in 2024, we are proud to announce our 10th Annual Hope Grows Victorian Tea. This signature event raises funds and engages the community in conversation about the importance of mental health and emotional support…a true lifeline for family caregivers!

On Sunday, May 19, we will welcome more than 200 guests to spend time together for a worthy cause while enjoying a traditional “tea.” The afternoon will include speakers, basket raffles, a silent auction, and the opportunity to hear hopeful stories from family caregivers who have successfully navigated, with the help of Hope Grows, through the challenges of family caregiving.

Our Keynote Speaker: Bethany Jaworowski
Bethany is a devoted mother and primary caregiver to her twin sons who are diagnosed with MECP2 Duplication Syndrome. With over a decade of experience as a mental health and disability services professional and over 6 years caregiving for her sons, Bethany is currently writing a book focusing on the “Caregiving ABC’s” (Advocate for your family, Build your community, and Care for yourself). Her passion is to empower others to develop these skills, enabling them to not just survive the challenges of caregiving but to also thrive.

In her commitment to service, Bethany works in Donor Relations for the Blessed Home Project and serves as a Family Support Representative for the MECP2 Duplication Foundation. She is also active in her church.

Bethany’s contributions and story have been featured on KDKA’s recent segment about Hope Grows, as well as on the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh website, the Joni and Friends Sharing Hope podcast, and the Pennsylvania Health Law Project website.

Whether you join us in person, donate a basket, or become a sponsor, we would love for you to be a part of this year’s event in support of family caregivers throughout the Pittsburgh region and beyond. Proceeds from the Hope Grows Victorian Tea will empower our clients to seek mental and emotional wellness, help them manage stress, and ultimately prevent caregiver burnout. We can only do this with the generosity of people like you!
