Our mission is to help raise awareness and funds for nonprofit organizations that have as one of their goals to eradicate the stigma associated with mental illness. We will do this by creating events that feature live music and provide a forum to share information about mental illness in a lively, relaxed atmosphere.
We ask that whether you suffer from a mental illness, have someone close to you who suffers from a mental illness or you just want to come out and have some fun, that you attend one of our events. It's always for a great cause!
