Community Grief Support Service (CGSS) will hold its ninth annual Lift Your Spirits benefit dinner and auction Oct. 11 from 5:30-8:30 p.m. at Park Lane on Cahaba Road in Mountain Brook. With a goal of $40,000, committee members are working hard. The money will help fund six 10-week grief support groups and professional grief counseling for people struggling with grief after the death of a loved one. CGSS is privileged to honor Casey Dunn, head baseball coach at Samford University, who will serve as honorary chairman for the event. Dunn has a personal understanding of grief. In 2004, his father, Sammy Dunn, died of stomach cancer. It was one of the few losses in his 27-year coaching career at Vestavia Hills High School. Sponsor tables are available for $1,000 and $1,250; individual reservations are $100. Complimentary valet parking is provided.
