HeartLine’s Festival of Hope 2013 ­Honors the Power of Hope

 

On Friday, August 23, HeartLine, Oklahoma's Community Crisis Connection will offer Oklahomans the opportunity to celebrate the power of hope and to honor those who improve the quality of life for people in Oklahoma. Led by community leader, local mental health professional, and Honorary Chair Dr. Louise Thurman, Festival of Hope 2013 will honor three individuals at An Evening of Acclamation and Admiration, beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum.

 

The 2013 Honorees are:

  • Desmond Mason is a talented artist who uses his unique gift to raise funds for numerous local charities through the Desmond Mason Art Show. Mason also volunteers throughout the community, giving his time, talent, and dollars to Oklahomans in need.
  • Dr. George E. Young has served as a board member for many different nonprofits, as a former Commissioner for DHS, is the senior pastor at Holy Temple Baptist Church, and is committed to serving the community in everything that he does.
  • Martha Burger is an active civic and community leader serving on the board for several organizations, chairing the 2011 United Way campaign, and a member of the MAPS 3 Citizen’s Advisory Board.

 

This year’s Advocate of Hope award will go to St. Charles Borromeo Catholic School for excelling in suicide prevention education and awareness.  Through the honorees and social event, Festival of Hope strives to raise awareness about suicide, which is an alarming problem in Oklahoma. The state ranks thirteenth in the nation in number of annual deaths by suicide and suicide is the second leading cause of death among Oklahomans ages 10-24.

 

Tickets to the 12th Annual Festival of Hope are $150 per person or $1,000 for a table of eight for dinner, live and silent auctions, and entertainment including live music and an open bar.

 

HeartLine connects Oklahomans to help, hope, and information- 24 hours a day through 2-1-1 information and referral, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-TALK (8255), the Oklahoma Problem Gambling Helpline 1-800-522-4700, the Careline 848-CARE, and the Healthy Education for Life Program (HELP) a suicide prevention program presented to youth in Oklahoma.

 

During times of disaster, HeartLine 2-1-1 is here to be the one place to call to give help or get help by connecting Oklahoman’s to information for donating or volunteering or to disaster relief services.
