Blacksburg, Virginia Concert to Raise Money for Anti-Huffing Awareness

A concert was held on Sunday September 13th 2015 at Blacksburg Presbyterian Church in order to raise money for inhalant abuse awareness. This was triggered by the death of a 41-year-old husband and father of two young children from inhalant abuse. The man was found dead clutching a can of computer cleaner. According to the family, he was suffering from PTSD from his most recent combat tour and had a long history of risk taking.

The concert itself was set up in order to raise money. Admission was free, although attendees were highly encouraged to donate to a memorial fund. Even before the event, it had raised over $8,500. The funds are designated for educational programs related to the issue and will be concentrated in Montgomery County Public Schools.
