The seventh annual A Night To Remember, A Time To Act will take place on International Overdose Awareness Day on Wednesday, August 31. A resource fair will begin at 5 p.m., with the candlelight vigil and program starting at 6:30 p.m.

The event brings members of the community together to remember those who have died of overdoses, as well as lift up those who are struggling with addiction and substance use disorder. Anyone is welcome to attend.

The vigil was started seven years ago by Cathi Lee and Debbie Warfield. They organize the event in memory of their sons, whom they lost to overdoses, and to help reach others who are struggling or grieving a loved one. The event is coordinated in partnership with Hope Soldiers, Snohomish County and the Snohomish Health District.

Overdose affects everyone. From grieving families to spontaneous first responders, the impacts of overdose are far-reaching and fall indiscriminately.
