Williams Kastner Honored with 2018 Bridge to Healing Award

September 12, 2018 ─ Williams Kastner will be honored with the 2018 Bridge to Healing Award at the Safe Crossings Foundation’s (SCF) annual luncheon on October 18, 2018 at the Seattle Sheraton. This award recognizes Williams Kastner’s influential role in helping thousands of grieving youth through funding special weekend grief camps, art therapy, suicide specific support and group counseling since SCF’s founding 30 years ago.

Teresa Bigelow and Carol McMullin founded Safe Crossings Foundation in honor of their late husbands, both lawyers at Williams Kastner, and their young children. Their goal was to ensure that all kids, regardless of family finances, could access vital grief support after experiencing firsthand the struggles of trying to find resources for their own children. Williams Kastner was a substantial source of initial funding and support for SCF thirty years ago. The firm continues to be a significant supporter of SCF as they continue their mission to help grieving children, regardless of circumstance.

“We are honored by this award and proud for our continued involvement with Safe Crossings Foundation and their mission to fund services that help grieving children heal and receive the emotional support they need” said Jessie Harris, Managing Member of Williams Kastner.

SCF’s annual luncheon will benefit local grieving children and attract over 600 community leaders and supporters from the Seattle area. For more information on SCF’s annual luncheon visit http://safecrossingsfoundation.org/annual-luncheon/.
