Pugh’s Flowers is once again sponsoring Camp Good Grief. The fundraising event is now in its twelfth year and we are so excited to continue to do something that benefits those in our local Memphis community, including customers, employees, friends, and family members.

This year’s Camp Good Grief will take place during the weekend of October 3. It will include both an in-person and virtual 5K run/walk with funds from the event going to Camp Good Grief. This is the Mid-South’s bereavement camp that was designed for children. Since 1999, Camp Good Grief has helped more than 1,500 children, ages 6-12, who have lost a loved one. And, over the past year with the pandemic, grief has become an even more critical topic to address for those of all ages.

Camp Good Grief has been able to continue thanks to grants and donations from individuals, organizations, and partnerships with local businesses like ours. The goal this year is to raise $25,000. We need your help! You can register here. You can also register at the event.

The race will occur on Sunday, October 3rd at Memorial Park Cemetery. The address is 5668 Poplar Avenue, Memphis, TN 38119. There will be a Kids’ Zone, dove release, awards presentation, and post-race party. Come spend the day with us!

Come by and get some flowers to wear during the competition or a bouquet for your favorite participant. Our fall floral collection is here with some beautiful ways to show your support, including sunflowers and fall roses.

Camp Good Grief is just one of many Memphis community events we commit to each year. From our inception, helping our neighbors and fellow community members has been a hallmark of our Memphis flower and gift shop.

We look forward to seeing you at this event and many others this year as we hope to get back to more in-person events where we can raise awareness and money for important issues that impact so many of us.
