Be The One-NC is proud to present the “SAY YES TO LIFE GALA,” taking place at the Cape Fear Regional Jetport on Saturday, September 10, 2022, 4:30PM – 10:00PM. This is the fourth in a series of charity events that shine a bright light on the importance of suicide awareness, prevention, and public education with a particular focus on the affect suicide has on our military, veterans, first responders, law enforcement and our youth. Guests will enjoy camaraderie, heavy hors d’ oeuvres, dancing, silent and live auctions and live music. Performing will be local singer-songwriter Jamie Dooley, the ever popular Christine Martinez Band, multi-award winning Nashville recording artist The Renegade Jason Ray Welsh Band, and the up and coming Nashville musical talent Jordan Oaks. All Gala proceeds will benefit Providence Homes of Southport Family Emergency Teen Center, NC.
Be The One-NC is a local charitable organization that supports the work of non-profits whose mission is suicide awareness and prevention and who advocate for and provide services to groups who are particularly at risk. The success of each event depends on the support of an army of volunteers who work together to draw upon the generosity of individuals and businesses from within the region in the way of donations, ticket sales, table and tent sponsors, talent, and silent and live auctions.
The SAY YES TO LIFE GALA coincides with World Suicide Prevention Day. Suicide is a serious public health problem that affects all ages. It’s a leading cause of death in the United States, with 45,979 deaths in 2020. This equates to one death every 11 minutes. In 2020, suicide was among the top 9 leading causes of death for people ages 10-64, and the second leading cause of death for people ages 10-14 and 25-34.
