This year was the 5th anniversary of the Landon Korabek OneLove JamFest and 5 years since Landon’s passing. In honor of Landon and in the spirit of his memory, we invited some of Landon’s friends to share memories about their times together and the impact he made on their lives. These young people, our friends, had the courage to speak from their heart to make us laugh and to allow us to shed some tears. Your words are reminders that every day is precious and that every moment with friends and family should also be cherished. Thank you Shannon, William, Jeff, J-raq, Forrest, Martin and Adam for speaking and sharing OneLove.
2015 NOPE Donation
On May 30, 2015, OneLove JamFest was proud to present our donation of $20,100 to NOPE (Narcotics Overdose Prevention and Education) Pinellas Task Force. In 5 years, we are thrilled to have contributed $72,800. NOPE is a group of community leaders and parents working to save lives through dramatic personal presentations about the deadly consequences of prescription drug abuse. They educate students in both middle and high schools and NOPE has reached over 80,000 students in Pinellas County. Landon Korabek’s story is one of many stories about young people that have died or struggled with prescription drugs. The goal is to plant seeds so students make good choices and call 911 to save a life. The JamFest donation also helps support the annual NOPE Candlelight Vigil, held in October, to remember those affected by addiction or the loss of a family member. Additionally, this year NOPE presented scholarships to 5 Pinellas County high school seniors attending college. It takes a community, near and far, to support OneLove JamFest and we are so grateful for your support that helps make this donation to an organization that is saving lives.
