Duet’s Annual Grandfamilies Picnic Crafted Great Memories for 90 Attendees
By Lindsay Hansen - Monday Apr 15, 2024
Grandparents and the grandchildren they are raising came together on Saturday, April 6, for an engaging afternoon full of good food and good times at the Annual Grandfamilies Picnic hosted by Duet: Partners In Health & Aging.

One grateful grandparent added, “I appreciate the support you give and know we are not alone.”

Attendees gathered to enjoy the beautiful weather at the Sahuaro Ranch Park in Glendale while creating cherished memories with engaging activities like lawn games, face painting, playing in a bounce house, a riveting game of Bingo, and rock painting.

Thanks to the generosity of long-time supporter and sponsor of the picnic, the Fennemore Foundation, kids got to experience the art of balloon sculptures from a local balloon artist and the families got to eat their fill as members of the foundation served up burgers and hotdogs as honorary grill masters. Each grandfamily was also invited to bring a dish to share with other attendees.

In addition to Duet’s kinship services team and volunteers from the Fennemore Foundation, 15 other community volunteers gave their time to make the event a success for the 90 grandparents and grandchildren who were in attendance.

The Annual Grandfamilies Picnic is one of the many grandfamily recreational and cultural outings hosted each month to provide a way for grandfamilies and kinship care families to socialize and build community. The outings give grandparents and kin a chance to relax and connect, while providing the children with an opportunity to have fun with other children sharing similar circumstances in a fun and recreational setting.
