Erin’s House hosts Coach Bobby Bowden at Common Bond Breakfast
(February 10, 2015) â€” Erin’s House for Grieving Children will host Coach Bobby Bowden as the 2015 Common Bond Breakfast featured speaker. The event is scheduled for Tuesday, April 28 at the Parkview Regional Medical Center Campus: Mirro Center. Doors will open at 7:00 a.m. with opening remarks and breakfast starting promptly at 7:30 a.m.
Coach Bobby Bowden is known as much for his affable charm as he is for his championship teams.

He and his wife of 61 years, Ann, live in Tallahassee, Florida. While Coach Bowden’s life journey has known great joy, he has also experienced great loss with the death of two grandsons through two separate tragedies.

About Erin’s House for Grieving Children
Erin’s House was founded in 1993 in honor of all grieving children and their families. The idea for Erin’s House was created when a 5-year old Fort Wayne girl named Erin Farragh died unexpectedly in 1989; the subsequent grief her surviving brother and sister experienced inspired the adults in their lives to take this idea and grow it into what it is today. To date, the organization has served more than 15,000 individuals throughout northeast Indiana, and it continues to provide support services for children, teens and their families who have suffered the death of a loved one. As an industry center for excellence, Erin’s House is continually reviewing its programs and services to ensure they are effective for children, teens and their families. All Erin’s House programs and services are provided at no cost.
