Sabrina Noelle Foundation seeks support

The Sabrina Noelle Foundation fundraiser will feature live mermaids and music. Pictured are mermaids Charlotte Reising and Caitlyn Hartzell, and musicians Nick Szekely of Skippy’s on the Run and RRRIOT! members Dom Mangione, Mallory Pajak, Robin Bartos and Luna Hinshaw.

The Sabrina Noelle Foundation was founded by Bay Village mother Kristin DuPrey after the loss of her 17-year-old daughter, Sabrina, to suicide. The foundation’s mission is to create strategies for better mental well-being. Methods for young adults include art as therapy, jewelry making, journaling, music and exercise.

On Saturday, June 3, from 4-8 p.m., the foundation will host its third annual Sabrina Street Party at Liquid Lifestyles, 975 Basset Road in Westlake. Young designers will showcase their work in jewelry, music and art. Local high school bands RRRIOT! and Skippy’s on the Run will perform live. Food trucks will offer food and dessert for sale.

Proceeds from this nonprofit organization help fund jewelry supplies, journals, exercise programs and local scholarships, allowing the Sabrina Noelle Foundation to give back to the community. To date, they have donated over $19,900 in scholarships.

As part of the ongoing effort to raise awareness of mental health, in the scholarship process students are encouraged to write about strategies to help normalize talking about mental health in the community.
