The Out of the Darkness (OOTD) suicide prevention group spent April in training, and they will be roaring back to public events in May.  My earlier article reported on the stats and the first dining out events.  Three more restaurants and an art business have risen to the care to donate a portion to save lives.

Included are .pdf files of the flyers for each event.  Please print or download onto your smart device to bring with you.

The great buffet event starts at 5:00 in evening until 9:00.  Pizza Ranch will donate 20% of the dinner tab to OOTD.  Plus, volunteers will bus the tables for tips, so you are invited to contribute as much as you can to keep another living.

Important Reminder of What to Say

When ordering, please specify that you are there to support Out of the Darkness to prevent suicide.  That message sets the giving into motion.

Thanks Much to everyone who came to previous OOTD events, and maybe I'll see you at these soon.
