A communal sober rally is scheduled for Sunday, September 10, 2017 in Lakeworth, Florida.
Fort Lauderdale, FL: Spark of Hope and Partners in Hope are organizing a community rally to promote positive action and awareness on the opioid epidemic. This one day gathering will be the first of its kind as it seeks to bring together a local as well as national panel of experts, lecturers, artists, musicians, volunteers and concerned citizens whose collaborative efforts would hopefully curtail and eradicate the heroin opioid crisis that has killed scores of young people in our country.
“The timing couldn’t be better,” said Gina Beckwith, Director of Public Relations for Spark of Hope. “As we were gearing up to promote this rally, Governor Scott just declared opioid abuse a public emergency in the state of Florida.” Beckwith hopes the rally will create more than just awareness. “We need action, whether it’s through legislature or the community. Too many deaths have occurred and talking about the epidemic simply isn’t enough.”
The rally will take place at a 20-acre campground in Lakeworth, Florida. It is scheduled to feature live music, motivational speakers, meditation, AA/NA meetings, team-building activities, vendors, raffles, prizes and much more.
“We are inviting everyone to take part in this unprecedented event,” said Meegan Evans, Clinical Supervisor for Spark of Hope. “We are sick and tired of reading the tragic headlines and negative statistics on this dreaded epidemic. Our goal is to create positive action through positive outreach. Hence, this is why we call it Hope Fest.”
Tickets for Hope Fest are $15 per person. Parking is free and food (kosher) will be available on-site for purchase. All proceeds will go to benefit those affected by the opioid crisis.
