Calm Waters Center for Children and Families is overjoyed to announce that a total of $40,114 was raised at the inaugural Ripples of Hope benefit breakfast at the OKC Will Rogers Theatre in on June 6.

Our brand new fundraiser was emceed by Shannon Presti, and the featured keynote speaker was the one and only Elizabeth “Liz” Clinton, whose father was one of four men wrongly convicted of a tragic murder in Ada, Oklahoma, leaving her without a father for the 12 years he was in prison. Her family’s story was featured in the compelling Netflix and John Grisham documentary and book, “The Innocent Man,” released in December.

Our mission is to help children and families in their grief journey caused by death, divorce, or other significant loss. Our vision is to become the metropolitan area’s leading organization responsible for heightening individual and public awareness of grief responses in children and adults; for teaching healthy coping communication, parenting and relationship skills; and for being the resource for education, research and development in the grief experience.
