The concert has an educational element to it as well. Speakers include the following: Dr. Teresa Dews from Cleveland Clinic Pain Management; Stanley Stone, a former addict who's currently an interventionist/drug counselor; Rose Deroia, a pharmacist who lost her son to opioid addiction; Ohio CAN's (Change Addiction Now) Anna Szinko; and Maple Heights Police Chief John Popielarczyk, who will speak and also perform.

The event will take place at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 3. Travis Haddix and his seven-piece band will headline. The bill also includes Gaetano’s Underworld, Colin Dussault, Sam Hooper Group and the Bluescasters.

Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door. All proceeds will benefit five area recovery shelters including Stella Maris, Rosary Hall, Matt Talbot, True Freedom Ministries and Greater Than Heroin.

Various agencies will be on hand to provide information on awareness and prevention.
