Partnership Carson City is honoring those who have lost their life to an overdose with a Facebook live event Thursday, August 27 at 6 p.m. The event coincides with International Overdose Awareness Day.

“This is a very real problem for many and especially difficult for those that have lost a loved one,” said Hannah McDonald, executive director for Partnership Carson City. “Many are not equipped to notice the signs or where to go for help. At Partnership Carson City, we serve as a connector to help those struggling. This event is important because we also need to honor those that we’ve lost.”

We’ll be showcasing a memorial video of photos of your lost loved one or of you lighting a candle. To participate, email photos to by August 26, 2020.

Carson City’s memorial wall will be located at the corner of Musser and Carson streets on the lawn of the Nevada Capitol Building. The display of bottles represents one Nevadan who has lost their life to an overdose and integrates educational statistics.
