A local suicide prevention center is looking to raise awareness of its presence in the neighborhood, while raising funds through a trivia night and happy hour next weekend.
The trivia night fundraiser next weekend will go to benefit Pieta House, an Irish non-profit dedicated to suicide and self-harm prevention that launched in Long Island City in 2015.
“We wanted to get the word out to everyone that this is a universal issue and Pieta House is open and here to help anyone,” explained one of the event organizers, Ty Sullivan. “We decided to do a local fundraiser at Bar 43 to get the word out, and to help build awareness for an even bigger event next month.”
The fundraiser will be held at Bar 43 at 43-06 43rd Street on Saturday beginning
