Group brings holiday cheer to grieving families

The holidays can be a hard time for kids and families who have lost loved ones to violence. 

That’s why a group called “Victims of Milwaukee Violence,” hosted its first holiday party over the weekend. 

Organizer Janice Gorden says the event is all about taking people’s minds off their grief. 

“I want the children to forget about what's going on in their life,” she said. “I want them to laugh until their stomachs hurt.”

Gorden says she expects the event to become an annual one.
