Music for Mental Health 1/6/18

On Saturday, January 6, 2018, Oswego, NY resident and musician John McConnell and friends are hosting an event called Music for Mental Health (MFMH).

The event will take place from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at The American Foundry in Oswego, NY (246 W Seneca St.) John’s goal is to rally the community around an evening of live music that seeks to raise awareness for mental health issues and helps to lessen the stigma associated with mental illness.

Proceeds from this event will be donated to NAMI Syracuse.

Music for Mental Health will feature performances by: John McConnell, Gary Carpentier (NBC’s The Voice), Cam Caruso, The Love Volcanoes and many other fine Central New York musicians. There will be two local professional counseling services represented on site, in addition to several other local businesses. As part of the evening’s events there will be a 50/50 raffle and a table raffle featuring: gift certificates, gift baskets and other items donated by local and regional businesses.

Tickets are $20 and are available for purchase at:
