Musical show for the benefit of suicide prevention groups
October 6 — On Friday, Positive Productions will present musical performances to benefit suicide prevention at the Ironton Elks Lodge # 177.
“Really, we wanted to do it because we’ve all been affected by suicide,” said Rob Pemberton of Positive Productions. “We wanted to raise funds for organizations in our area like Pathways and Lawrence County Suicide Prevention Coalition.”
The event will feature local artists and hip hop performances from 7 to 11:30 p.m. Tickets cost $ 10, and all proceeds will go to suicide prevention organizations.
Resources will be available for participants.
For example, the traditional bracelet will have the number for a suicide hotline, “so if someone has mental health issues they can text the number on the bracelet,” Pemberton said.
A representative from the Lawrence County Suicide Prevention Coalition will be on hand to answer questions.
“There will be locks for people who come in and want to take one, there is a lot of stuff we do besides music,” Pemberton said.
As for the music, “Postive Productions will be playing. Our good friend Damon Pinkey will be there, he was the one who came up with the idea, it was just me who put all the ducks in a row,” Pemberton mentioned. “Michael Knuckles and Marc Sowards will also be performing.”
