September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. Sadly, we lose 22 veterans every day to suicide. Come show your support to a community who needs YOU to be involved. YOUR presence at this event can help to save a life troubled by invisible wounds. Proceeds go to Operation Shockwave's Veteran Empowerment programs, educational resources and future events to bring awareness to our community. A small portion of the night's proceeds also go to Dogs4Vets; American Service Animal Society (a local non-profit here in Gilbert, AZ) that offers service dog training to Military Veterans at no cost.
