We are raising $50,000 to benefit the Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement!

On 8.31.18, many of Scarlett’s friends and colleagues hosted a special “Be Part of the Solution” family fundraiser at Tilley Pond Park in conjunction with the Darien Summer Nights Concert Series.  The Spadtastics (a popular Grateful Dead cover band) performed from 6 – 10pm to a packed house, there to show their support for the Choose Love Movement.

The Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement™ is a charitable organization whose mission is to ensure that every child has access to social and emotional learning in their classrooms, and to help facilitate this teaching within their families, schools, and communities.

Scarlett Lewis founded this movement after her 6-year-old son was murdered at Sandy Hook elementary school.  The solution is teaching children to have healthy and positive relationships, deep and meaningful connections, tools and skills for resilience, caring and concern for themselves and others. The formula:  Courage + Gratitude + Forgiveness + Compassion in Action = Choosing Love is based on a message Jesse wrote on his family’s kitchen chalkboard shortly before he died – “Nurturing, Healing Love.”

Goal: Darien Summer Nights “The Spadtastics!” event benefiting Jesse Lewis Choose Love: $50,000
