The premiere event is being hailed as an extraordinary evening with a Manteo luxurious sit-down dinner, decadent desserts, complimentary cocktails, wandering entertainment, live artistic talents, live entertainment, guest speakers, silent auction and much more.

Industry and community leaders will once again come together to show support and to benefit positive mental health and suicide prevention.

The LifeLine Canada app delivers unparalleled access to support for Canadians and people worldwide in need, whether they be people struggling with depression or survivors of tragedy.

The Benefit For Life offers a unique opportunity to show support for positive mental health and suicide prevention.

“The community has been struggling with many more suicides this year,” explained Liane Weber, CEO of the LifeLine Canada Foundation.

Speakers include Weber herself, Dr. Darrell Wolfe is set to speak on the alignment of health and mental wellness, Dr. Kim Dawson will be speaking on therapy dogs including assisted therapy and Dr. Kathy Keating will be speaking on workplace mental wellness.

“Sage, a Companion Paws dog will be joining us at the event as well.”
