Legendary Disc-Jockey, Cerphe Colwell, is the Master of Ceremonies.
“Mental Illness is something that’s not easy to discuss, but bringing well-known musicians into the mix, eases the pressure and helps draw awareness to a topic that effects 1 in 5 Americans and has impacted several students in Loudoun County,” says Katrina Cole, President, Friends of Loudoun Mental Health.
September is Suicide Prevention Month and Friends of Loudoun Mental Health want to bring awareness to the staggering statistic of suicide. Over 32,000 people in the United States die by suicide each year. Sadly, eleven students in Loudoun County Public Schools have taken their own lives in the last twenty-four months.
Friends of Loudoun Mental Health wants to bring everyone together, to connect to those who have been affected by suicide, raise awareness, and educate people of the treatments.
Tickets are $45.00 and include admission to the concert, food by Monk’s BBQ, a silent and live auction, and a cash bar. All proceeds will support Friends of Loudoun Mental Health in their efforts to support Loudoun County residents that suffer with a mental illness live better lives.
General tickets are open seating. If you are coming with a group of people, reserve a table (up to 10). Tickets may be purchased at www.loudounfriends.org.
Friends of Loudoun Mental Health – The mission of Friends of Loudoun Mental Health is to drive back the darkness afflicting so many of our fellow citizens in Loudoun County.
