Our next monthly Bank Show is Friday, October 3, 2014. The proceeds from this show will be donated to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. The show will take place in The Central New York Playhouse, which is located in Shoppingtown Mall. The show will start at 8 PM, and the doors will open a half hour in advance.
We love entertainment, comedy, fun, and drama as much as everyone else. We love to laugh, and we love to cry. Entertainment is about being affected. It’s about feeling passion toward performing and being an audience member.
Mental health is a sensitive topic across our nation and throughout the world. It’s something that has to be addressed and not brushed under the carpet.
It’s about raising awareness. It’s about being able to seek help when it’s needed. It’s about your being available and ready to help others — those close to you and even strangers. If it’s simply “being there” temporarily before those in need seek the treatment they need, your role is still important.
We lost many this year. We may have lost friends and family. We lost entertainers and role models we looked up to. Whether their depression led them to acting out violently, their resorting to drugs and overdosing, or ending their own lives — there are now holes.
There will be a $5 minimum donation, a suggested donation of $10, but there is no donation that is too large.
