The Tree of Life – Bringing Awareness to Gun Violence

August 12 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Calling all community members! Get ready for an unforgettable day of healing that not only brings us together but also takes a stand against gun violence. Our annual Tree of Life event takes place on August 12, 2023 from 12pm – 4pm. Mark your calendars because this event is free and open to the public, ensuring that everyone can join in on the fun and support a cause close to our hearts.

Together, we can end gun violence.

We’re excited to announce that we’ll be hosting a cookout like no other, filled with mouthwatering food, laughter, and an incredible sense of camaraderie. But that’s not all! Prepare to witness some jaw-dropping basketball skills as we gather teams for an exhilarating 3 on 3 tournament. The court will be buzzing with energy as players showcase their talent and compete for victory.

And if you thought things couldn’t get any more thrilling, think again! We’ve got a dunk contest lined up that will leave you in awe.

Beyond the excitement lies a deeper purpose for this get-together. This community event serves as our united front against gun violence, reminding us of the importance of coming together as one strong voice. By joining together on August 12th we send one message: that gun violence has no place in our community.
