Festival to Curb Addictions
Recovery Rising, an art & music festival to benefit addiction recovery, will take place from noon to 8 p.m., September 8, at Amethyst Retreat Center. There will be food, musicians, artists, artisans, vendors and a silent art auction, with 100 percent of the proceeds donated to Just for Today Recovery, Veterans Support Services and The RASE Project. It is a chance for local artists and musicians to share their crafts and talents while bringing awareness and monetary assistance to those recovering from addictions.
