Chester County’s Department of Drug & Alcohol Services, the Department of Mental Health Services and the John R. Gailey III and JoEllen Berger Charitable Fund, is hosting “Rock for Recovery”, a benefit concert to support the County’s efforts to address the opioid crisis. The concert is Saturday, September 21, 2019 from 5-9pm at West Chester University's Emilie K. Asplundh Concert Hall, 700 S. High St in West Chester. 

Proceeds from “Rock for Recovery” will support the overdose survivor warm hand-off program in Chester County, which connects overdose survivors with treatment services.

“The main goal of the concert is to increase awareness of recovery in Chester County while having fun and supporting a very worthwhile cause,” said Vince Brown, Director of Chester County’s Department of Drug and Alcohol Services.

“Rock for Recovery” includes live performances, a silent art auction, a photo booth, signed collectibles and parking is free.

Brandon Novak of “Jackass” fame will serve as Master of Ceremonies and guest speaker. The Mark Evans Band will headline a concert that will feature special performances by Richard Bush of The A's and The Peace Creeps, plus Nita Slater of Beru Revue and Crack the Sky fame.

Extra-Special guests include American Pop Artist Perry Milou, who has donated some of his works for a silent auction, and National American Miss, Miss Pennsylvania 2019 Victoria Mullin, a WCU senior.

“It is estimated that there are around 35,000 people living in recovery right here in Chester County,” noted Vince Brown. “We are working together, and must continue to work together to increase education and awareness of the fact that there is hope, people do recover, and events like this concert are key part of that."
