HelpMyPeople.org Presents: A Party With A Purpose-Benefit “For Veterans, By Veterans”
Minneapolis, Minnesota— On Thursday, October 17, 2019, the James Ballentine Uptown VFW Post 246 will be open to the public to party with a purpose. This benefit event includes a showcase headlined by local music artist, Paige Ellis. She will hit the stage to entertain and provide a real life example of how music and the arts are therapeutic to veterans who have suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The funds raised from this event will be allocated to a PTSD Recreational Center. The program is designed to assist veterans with the transition from military life to civilian life using music, exercise and the arts.
Who exactly is spearheading this initiative? DONALD ASKEW JR., is a Memphis Native who has relocated to Minnesota since 2017. As a veteran of the U.S. Military, he knows all too well the effects that PTSD have on veterans. "I was placed in a mental ward for 14 days when I returned home from war in Iraq in 2004-2005. I was a guinea pig for medications to treat PTSD, but none of it worked. I started writing songs and got into different trades such as barbering. My goal is to strengthen suicidal and homicidal prevention amongst veterans."
Attendees will be able to experience an amazing show as well as gain information and learn how they can get involved. Food and drinks will be available to patrons as well. To register,visit bit.ly/partywithapurposevetfundraiser.
