Keys of Hope: Designing for a Brighter Future, A Dueling Pianos Event

Join the Central IL City Center of the IIDA Illinois Chapter in supporting NAMI Ending the Silence, a mental health education and suicide prevention program that destigmatizes teenage mental illness and empowers them to ask for help. The program was designed by NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) and is delivered locally in McLean County by Project Oz in collaboration with NAMI Mid Central IL and McLean County Health Department.

Dueling pianos will provide the entertainment for the event, and sweepstakes prizes will be throughout the venue that each attendee will have the chance to win. The first 20 ticket purchasers will receive a FREE sweepstakes entry key for the Grand Prize. All proceeds from the sweepstakes sales will be donated to Project Oz, whose mission is to support youth and families in our community. This includes providing suicide prevention for every student in McLean County public junior high schools and high schools, which is approximately 3,500 students annually.
