OUR HEARTS GO ON
–Let’s Honor Those We’ve Lost–
Poughkeepsie, NY (February 3, 2023) –
Poughkeepsie Galleria will be hosting a “Our Hearts Go On” on Saturday, February 11th and Sunday February 12th from 12pm-4pm in Center Court. The goal of the event is to create a positive way in which the community’s grief and sadness can be turned into a supportive and educational event that honors those who have been lost due to chemical overdose, suicide, drunk driving, social violence and the many physical ailments which take individuals far too soon.
Using the idea of a “Forever in our Hearts” Wall, attendees will be able to place a heart on the wall with the name of a person / or persons they have lost to remember and honor them. Donations for the Hearts will start at $1 and all proceeds from them will go to benefit the non-profit organizations participating in the event.
The following picture is an idea of the removable 4”x 5” sticker being used for the event.
Stickers will remain on the “Forever in Our Hearts” Wall for the remainder of February and the Malls will give away several Mall gift certificates to selected individuals who participated at a special event in March, when they can retrieve their hearts from the wall.
