The Revere CARES Coalition, the City of Revere and the Revere Beach Partnership invite you to the 7th Annual Revere Beach Memorial, a candlelight vigil remembering those whose lives have been cut short due to alcohol and other drugs. Please join other community members at 7:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 29, 2013 at the William G. Reinstein Bandstand on Revere Beach (rain or shine).
The Revere Beach Memorial serves as a way to remember those who lost their lives to substance abuse. It is an opportunity for family members and friends to gain strength and support from others who have experienced a similar loss, and it is a reminder to those struggling with addiction that treatment can save lives. The planning committee for the Revere Beach Memorial is a group of dedicated individuals who are committed to helping Revere prevent and address substance abuse.
This important annual event is made possible through the support of local residents and business owners. If you are interested in making a donation to the Revere Beach Memorial fund, please send checks (made payable to the ‘Revere Beach Memorial Fund’) to the Revere Beach Memorial, c/o Revere CARES Coalition, 300 Ocean Avenue, Revere, MA 02151. Money raised will not only go towards continuing the memorial, it will also be used to support local addiction treatment programs and youth education. Funds raised in the past have been donated to the North Suffolk Mental Health Meridian House, East Boston Rehab and a Revere High School scholarship fund for youth impacted by addiction.
Individuals who would like to remember a loved one at the Memorial are invited to call (781) 485-6404 to register their loved ones’ names. Registration will also be open between 6:00-7:00 p.m. on the night of the event. Family members and friends are also invited to bring photographs of the loved ones they have lost to add to a ‘memorial wall’ that will be up during the event.
Everyday, we each remember those we have lost; let’s spend a moment remembering together.
