The Cradle offers the opportunity to create a lasting tribute to a loved one or to commemorate a special occasion by purchasing an engraved brick to be included in The Cradle’s Commemorative Brick Walkway. More than 2,200 bricks have been purchased since the program was launched in 2000, and the engraved bricks now line the walkway and garden of our building in Evanston. Many families have purchased bricks to honor their child’s Adoption Day, or to recognize a special birthday or other occasion.
There are two sizes: a standard brick measures 4" x 8” and can include three lines of text, 13 characters per line (including spaces). The deluxe brick measures 8" x 8” and can include five lines of text, 13 characters per line.
The Cradle orders customized commemorative bricks twice per year.
Brick purchases with dedication information must be received by May 31, 2021 to be included in our Spring order.
