Saturday, October 14, 2017
6PM (doors open at 5:30PM)

Camden Waterfront Stadium
401 North Delaware Ave Camden, NJ

3 states, 15 counties! Join family and friends from all over the Delaware Valley in remembrance of loved ones we’ve lost to the grip of addiction.

The Regional Vigil will bring a sense of community to the battle of addiction. People in public service, public health and within the community will come together to share memories with people in recovery, still fighting the battle and to those left behind; while also being an outlet for friends and family to comfort each other and know they are not alone in their fight.

The Vigil will include speakers, service tables, grief counselors and a dessert reception.

Help raise awareness of the crisis we’re facing in our communities. Let’s erase the stigma and advocate for change.

Music provided by Symphony in C.
