Love of Recovery - Free Music Festival - September 9, 2017 (12PM - 5:00PM) - Venue LOCATION: Kirby Park @ 160 Market St, Wilkes-Barre, PA 18704.
Hello I'm Lori Sullivan Co-Founder of Rockers In Recovery, a media and productions company that specialize in bringing addiction education together with music events. The events are to help those affected by addiction may it be the addict or their loved ones.
RIR is not a treatment center - Since it launched in 2008, Rockers in Recovery®, a for-profit media and production company, has attracted tens of thousands to its music festivals and reached millions more through its online reach. The message the organization is spreading through rock 'n' roll: there is hope, addiction recovery is possible.
When RIR produces a festival production we select in the area Non-Profits to work with. Please support the Non-Profits with a direct donation online, or at their both the day of the event. We are proud to announce the following for September 9thFestival in Wilkes-Barre, PA.;
Since the start of our music festivals in February of 2011, attendees can go right to the recovery information tent manned all day with addiction professionals to help everyone. Each RIR Festival has bands and solo acts along with a list of 10-minute addiction professional speakers in between bands. RIR is educating while having fun in a fun, loving environment. Festival goers also Enjoy Music, Recovery Speakers, Arts and Crafts Exhibitors , Food Vendors, Recovery Merchandise, Addiction Education, Evidenced Based Treatment Options , and Veteran P.T.S.D./Addiction education Information.
We make these events totally free to anyone who would like to attend. In order to do this we rely on sponsorship dollars. We work very hard to make this a win win for everyone.
How? By becoming a sponsor we promote your organization/company through our many media platforms based on the sponsorship level you decide on. The earlier a sponsor comes aboard the longer you are promoted. You are also part of a great community event that promotes and shows recovery is possible (hope) as well as educating and helping those in need (help).
Of course in turn your sponsorship dollars are a 100% advertising write off and mostly help pay for the production costs of the event. A win win!!
Again, we can only do this event through the participation of organizations like yours.
Let's "Unite to Fight" against the ignorance and stigma associated with addiction! I thank you for you time and consideration.
It was 2004 and I was stuck in a room drinking and drugging like a pig. I was using 24 hours a day 7 days a week. My state of mental health was off the chain to say the least. Deep down inside I was on a road to death and knew it and was really ok with it. It's Always Darkest Before Dawn. Read More
