On Monday, September 24, 2018 Camouflage Me Not (CMN) presented "Cocktails & Conversations". This was CMN’s fundraising signature event in recognition of “National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month”. The Organizer & Founder, Erica N. Parks, MPH, CNP designed this event which was held at Pour. Kitchen + Bar in Brookhaven, Georgia. The event included a diverse group of expert facilitators. The facilitators were: Tiffiny Fambro, MPH; Sharday Fields, LMSW; Minister Wendell Fields; Faith Simpson, LPC; and Shontel Solomon, LMFT. The facilitators each facilitated a table dialogue with 2-3 attendees. Each facilitator led a dialogue which included a case scenario with discussion questions and a global impact question to create collaboration. There were 18 registered attendees. CMN had (8) sponsored tickets from four individual donors. The attendees included: veterans, community leaders, small business owners, clinicians, a faith leader, and a nurse practitioner.
CMN is very grateful for the companies that helped to sponsor their event. The companies were: Synergy Works, Build Body Wealth, Avon, and Extended Stay of America – Atlanta/Buckhead. Ms. Parks realizes that her organization could not have had a successful fundraising event without her partnership with Daniel Campbell (Army Veteran), Restaurant Manager, Pour. Kitchen + Bar. Likewise, she is truly grateful for their event ticket sponsors Dave Bright (Army Veteran), Brighten Your Light Radio Show; Gary Dabney (Army Veteran) G-Dab-Photography; Jessica Lane; Jeremiah Lockett; and Christopher Marks (Army Veteran). Finally, Parks expressed her gratitude for the individuals: Eric Young, Thelbert Snowden, Reginald Johnson, Carolyn Willis, and Melanie Williams who gave a donation to support this event. Parks stated, “Thank you facilitators, sponsors, and donors for investing into our vision because of you we were able to empower our attendees, impart change, and raise $230 from this event.
