Please join us on October 27, 2017. We'll be joined by WCCO's Esme Murphy as the master of ceremonies and event co-chairs, Minnesota Sen. Chris Eaton and Rep. Dave Baker. The goal of this event is to raise funds to continue our critical mission of saving lives.
Over the last six years in America, opioid overdose deaths have increased from roughly 15,000 deaths per year to 33,000. There was a 12 percent increase in opioid involved deaths from 2015 to 2016 in Minnesota. The greatest number of opioid-involved deaths continues to be due to commonly prescribed opioids; accounting for over 50 percent of all opioid overdose deaths in Minnesota. Help us educate and protect communities, families, and children in great cities like Edina across Minnesota.
Unmask Opioid Addiction is Minnesota's first-ever masquerade gala working to combat this public health crisis. We'll be joined by special guests, influencers, and the recovery community.

A public that wants action to end the epidemic of addiction and overdose deaths.
An environment that empowers those affected by addiction to seek the help and support they need without shame or judgment.
