Sanford civic organizations raise money for suicide prevention/awareness

Jamming for Suicide Prevention & Awareness and other events hosted in February by Sanford civic groups raised a total of $15,333 for Sweetser programs.

Each organization held their own fundraiser and it culminated with a benefit concert Feb. 29 with performances from Whiskey Bent & Hell Hounds, Texas Pete, Southbound, Barfly’s, Stone Free and Northern Charm at the Sanford Elks Lodge.

We are so appreciative of the amazing volunteers who dedicated their time creating and hosting this fundraiser on behalf of suicide prevention/awareness: AmVets Post 3, Sanford Elks Lodge #1470, Sanford VFW & Auxiliary Post #9935, and Wolves Club. Thank you so much!
