Dine and Learn


Dine & Learns are a free and convenient way to learn everything you need to know about pre-planning your final wishes.

We have seen first-hand the priceless benefits that pre-planning can bring to families, and we want to give everyone in our community the opportunity to enjoy those benefits. That starts with a conversation about what pre-planning entails and how to get the ball rolling, which we discuss in detail at our local Dine & Learn events. 

What does a Dine & Learn look like?

Run by owner Matthew Fiorillo and his team, our Dine & Learns take place at various local restaurants where attendees are treated to a meal and an informative presentation about pre-planning as well as pre-funding. The group, which typically consists of around 20-25 people, is encouraged to ask questions at any point during the 30-minute presentation. After the event, attendees can set up an appointment with Ballard-Durand’s pre-planning specialists to answer follow-up questions and get their plans in place.
