We recently provided the photo booth at an event called Unmask Opioid Addiction at The Westin Edina Galleria.
Unmask Opioid Addiction was “a night dedicated to the partners and supporters of the Steve Rummler Hope Network.”
The goal of this event was to raise funds to continue our critical mission of saving lives.
“Over the last six years in America, opioid overdose deaths have increased from roughly 15,000 deaths per year to 33,000. There was a 12 percent increase in opioid involved deaths from 2015 to 2016 in Minnesota. The greatest number of opioid-involved deaths continues to be due to commonly prescribed opioids; accounting for over 50 percent of all opioid overdose deaths in Minnesota.”
Unmask opioid addiction was the first ever masquerade gala [Steve Rummler Hope Network]. They were joined by special guests, influencers, and the recovery community.
The Steve Rummler Hope Network has the following goals:
Healthcare professionals who are educated in and practice responsible prescribing and who provide treatment focused on wellness rather than drugs.
A public that wants action to end the epidemic of addiction and overdose deaths.
An environment that empowers those affected by addiction to seek the help and support they need without shame or judgment.”
We always enjoy working events like these- they’re so great for our community and have such an impact on lives!
