In conjunction with the suicide prevention awareness walk/run in Lakeview in May, the Village Restaurant and Lounge had a fundraiser of their own to help raise money for suicide prevention. The Village donated a percentage of their pizza sales; $500, and the VFW matched the donation. $1,000 was donated to the “22” Veteran’s Suicide Prevention in Jared Brewster’s name from the people of Lake County. Twenty-two veterans take their own lives every day, and since that campaign started, it is estimated that the number is closer to 26.
