Fundraiser for Suicide Awareness
October 6 @ 2:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Earlier this summer, Philadelphia Sheriff Dante Austin, a devoted, young member of our community, lost his battle with wellness. Members of law enforcement as well as Dante’s friends and family will be walking to raise awareness of suicide and all of its effects, not only immediate but long-term as well.
The Tavern Group (Ubar, TavernOn Camac, The Tavern, Inn On Camac, and Otto’s Taproom ) will be hosting a block party on Sunday, October 6th on Camac Street, after the Suicide Awareness Walk at the Art Museum from 2pm – 8pm.
This year, we’re hoping to raise at least $5,000.00 for TEAM DANTE with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
Our block party will be not only a celebration of life, but also bringing awareness to mental wellness, and the need to have open discussions and remove the stigma that can be attached to mental wellness. I am hoping you can spend a few hours helping this not only incredible but also necessary cause.
