About This Event
Girls Rise Up believes in the healing power of community and offers girls (ages 8-18) who have experienced mother loss an opportunity to connect with each other through social gatherings. These events provide opportunities for youth motherless daughters to connect and create a community.
Join us for our 3rd annual Girls Rise Up Mother’s Day Gathering! Girls and Girls Rise Up Mentors will enjoy a special High Tea followed by a craft facilitated by Letters of Love. Girls and Mentors are invited to email a picture of their moms to be framed and shared with the group at a memorial table on the day of the event. We look forward to honoring and remembering our mothers on this special day! Dressy-casual attire (no jeans please).
Girls Rise Up is a program series offered through the organization She Climbs Mountains which is a local organization that provides new events and opportunities for motherless daughters to connect with other women who have lost their mothers. Lakewood is honored to partner with this amazing organization to bring these special Mother’s Day remembrance events onsite to our beautiful Garden Mausoleum, and connect our audience with this organization.
Any women over 19 are encouraged to attend our Mother’s Day High Tea later in the afternoon.
This event is free for all girls ages 8-18. But registration is required.

The Lakewood Garden Mausoleum
This event will take place in the upper level reception space of our beautiful Garden Mausoleum. This modern building was designed in 2012 by HGA Architects and serves as both an active mausoleum and a community space, making it the perfect location for grief and remembrance events.
Signs will be posted directing you to the event location or click here for GPS navigation through Google Maps.
Parking is available on any of the roads inside Lakewood’s gates unless otherwise noted with a no parking sign. Handicap parking will be available near the building entrance. Lakewood does not have an onsite parking lot – it is street parking only. This means you may have to park a short distance away and walk.
There is a bus that stops right outside of Lakewood’s gates, the Garden Mausoleum is about two “city blocks” away from the entrance.
Lakewood has one small bike rack near the front gates, which is a short walking distance to the Garden Mausoleum. Please do not lock bikes to any of our signs or trees.
