Party for Life Fundraiser To Help Prevent Suicide

From today's Fairfax Extra:

The annual Party for Life fundraiser for suicide prevention is scheduled for 6 p.m. Nov. 16 at the Clarendon Grill in Arlington.

Founded in 2002 by two Northern Virginia friends who lost their fathers to suicide, Party for Life has raised more than $70,000 for suicide prevention and mental health awareness programs. All proceeds benefit Active Minds, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, CrisisLink and the National Mental Health Association's "mpower" program.

The grill is at 1101 N. Highland St. Tickets are $45 in advance ($50 at the door) and include two drinks, appetizers, a raffle ticket and entertainment from the rock band Gonzo's Nose. For more information or to register, visit http://www.partyforlife.com .

I wrote a detailed article about Party For Life last year.
