Don’t Miss: PeaceLove Gala Featuring Second City Comedy

Wednesday, April 03, 2013

 

PeaceLove brings art and kids and adults together in rewarding ways--now's a chance to help further their mission.

It's time to get your peace love on, Rhode Island. The PeaceLove Foundation will hold its 3rd annual Get Your PeaceLove On fundraising event May 1st. The evening’s honoree will be Craig Stenning, director of the Department of Behavioral Healthcare, Developmental Disabilities and Hospitals for Rhode Island, and the event will feature entertainment by Chicago’s legendary comedy theatre, Second City Communications.

The Foundation selected Stenning for his tireless advocacy in Rhode Island for individuals and families impacted by mental health disorders.

Honoring Craig Stenning

“Our entire organization is so excited and honored to have Craig be a part of our annual event,” said PeaceLove’s co-founder Jeffrey Sparr. “He believed in PeaceLove from the beginning. We’re thrilled to honor his vision and commitment to helping make a true difference in the lives of many.”

A special addition to this year’s Get Your PeaceLove On will be a performance by comedians from the renowned Second City Communications. The event will also feature live music from local musicians, food, beverages and specialty cocktails, door, a raffle, and a silent auction.

Mental Health Month

Get Your PeaceLove On, held each year during Mental Health Month in May, is the Foundation’s primary fundraiser, generating awareness and funds to support the work in the community. All funds from the event go to providing PeaceLove’s free expressive art experiences to individuals impacted by mental health disorders.

The event will be held from 6 p.m. until 11 p.m. on May 1, 2013 at The MET in Pawtucket. Sponsors include: CVS Caremark, Care New England, and Home Loan Investment Bank.
