Baptist Foundation Events
A great way to learn more about Baptist Foundation and the amazing work being done here every day is to support our many events throughout the community. We’d love to see you there!
Art of Caring
So many have lost loved ones and are in need of grief services, making the Art of Caring auction benefitting the Kemmons Wilson Family Center for Good Grief that much more vital to our mission. Instead of one day, the 2021 event took place over several days as participants viewed, bid on and won amazing art and collectibles online. Every year, all proceeds from the Art of Caring auction go to provide free grief services for Mid-South children and adults.
Cardiac Classic Golf Tournament
The 2022 Cardiac Classic Golf Tournament took place on October 3, and benefited the Baptist Heart Institute. This was our first golf tournament since the COVID-19 pandemic, and we wish to thank our generous sponsors and donors for their support. Our heartfelt thanks to:

Miles 4 Milla’s House
A 40-Mile Bike ride to raise funds and awareness for Baptist Centers for Good Grief, Milla’s House. The COVID-19 pandemic has made the work being done at Milla’s House that much more important, as thousands in our community try to cope with loss of a loved one and the increase in traumatic losses due to murder and suicide. The need is great, the waiting lists are long, and with additional funds, the services will continue to be provided to our community and move us towards healing.
Please visit miles4milla.org for more details and to register, donate and/or sponsor this event.
