Ever thought of getting your friends together to host an event to benefit the suicide prevention? Chairing an event to raise awareness and funds for research and education can be one of the most rewarding experiences in your life. Volunteers in our chapter have developed everything from golf tournaments to bowling events to parties - all in an effort to advance our mission.
