John’s Toast presents An Intimate Evening with O.A.R.
820 Hamilton St, Charlotte, NC 28206, USA
John’s Toast presents An Intimate Evening with O.A.R. is a fundraising event that benefits Pivotal Moments, an official 501(C)3, and every ticket includes an automatic donation to the charity.
An acoustic trio featuring lead-singer Marc Roberge, guitarist Richard On and drummer Chris Culos will entertain guests with your favorite O.A.R. songs while raising funds that will directly impact an online educational platform benefiting kids, teenagers, young adults and their support systems who might be facing various warning signs of Mental Wellness.
Anxiety and depression are often left undiagnosed and it’s the goal of John’s Toast and Pivotal Moments to help those in need of assistance to understand that support and educational platforms exist for their benefit. The National Alliance on Mental Illness notes that 1 in 5 people in the U.S. experiences some form of mental illness, and 50-percent of those cases develop by age 14. There is a need to understand the facts, myths and potential warning signs of mental distress. It’s not only those who might struggle that need assistance. It’s the support systems as well. It’s our goal to help provide support for those in need starting at a young age.
Pivotal Moments will use the proceeds raised from the John’s Toast event to fund EVERFI for the creation of an awareness and educational platform focused on Mental Wellness.
The EVERFI educational platform will address the following course topics:
Basics of mental health
Facts and Myths
Identifying the warning signs of mental distress
Bystander strategies: helping others in need
Two nights after the show, share your post using the #JohnsToast hashtag on Wednesday, Oct. 25 on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
