Mental Health Association celebrates Vero Beach’s 100th birthday while raising money for mental heal
If you haven’t heard by now, Vero Beach is turning 100 this year. The Mental Health Association in Indian River County is proud to be a part of the Centennial Celebration.
The association also is celebrating its 60th birthday as an intricate part of mental health providers in Vero Beach and Indian River County. What better way to honor two great milestones than with a spectacular dance floor and lively dance band that’s ready to entertain you!
So let’s Party & Dance through the Decades.
Rivertown Band will be the highlight of the evening with its 10 talented and engaging musicians. The songs will span seven decades, from Motown, Disco, Funk to today’s Top 40. The band elevates the dance floor experience with an intelligent light show that adds a different dimension to any party.
And what’s a party without a fabulous outfit?
Take time to remember your favorite decade of fashion and come dressed in it. The photo booth will be fully stocked with multiple accessories in case you can’t choose your favorite decade.
This monumental party will be March 9 at Oak Harbor Club House, Vero Beach. The evening kicks off with a VIP cocktail party featuring heavy hors-d’oeuvres at 5:30 p.m. Tickets are $150 per person. The doors will open and the band will debut at 7 p.m. for general admission ticket holders, which are $75 per person.
This fundraising event supports the association's work with mental health wellness in the community and provides high-quality treatment for those at risk. The Walk-In & Counseling Center, located at 820 37th Place in Vero Beach, includes services for individual therapy and counseling, mental wellness classes, crisis intervention, consultation, referrals and follow-up treatment, as well as walk-in, same day services.
As the local affiliate of Mental Health America, the association promotes “B4Stage4” for mental wellness. The concept is simple: To address mental health concerns before they reach Stage 4. When you think about cancer, heart disease or diabetes, you don’t wait years to seek treatment. The motto -- “It’s okay to get help” -- encourages those with a need not to wait to get help.
Association members hope you will participate in this special event and help reduce the mental health stigma and increase awareness.
This event wouldn’t be possible without the support of loyal sponsors, who are listed on the Mental Health Association website.
