The Devotion Project is a series of short documentary portraits of LGBTQ couples and families, examining and celebrating their commitment and love.  The series includes the story of two Oakland couples, Jaime & Laura and Anne & Eric, and their children.  Both Oakland couples had children with life-threatening conditions that were successfully treated at Children's Hospital & Research Center Oakland.  This event is a way for the families to show their gratitude for the incredible care they received.  All proceeds from the event will go to support the new Palliative Care program at Children's Hospital & Research Center Oakland.  To learn more about this program, run completely on grants and donations, click here.


This event will include a screening of all four pieces in The Devotion Project (including a premiere of Anne & Eric's story!), a raffle with prizes, a Q&A with the filmmaker and a reception with refreshments.
