Join Us to help raise awareness of Veteran issues and provide Veterans with suicide prevention resources, transportation, wellness checks, and a wide-ranging support system.
"Reaching for Zero" is an event which is focused on raising awareness of Veteran issues and reducing the number of Veteran suicides in our community. It is heartbreaking to know that in the USA, 22 Military Veterans take their lives each day.
This event will feature a Fabulous Paella Brunch, Notable Speakers, Color Guard by Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 989 of Reno, Live Music by Trio West - a Combo of the Mile High Jazz Band Assoc., Silent Auction, and a chance to win 2 Round-trip Flight Tickets to any Southwest Airlines Destination!

Proceeds from the event will benefit RSVP's Veteran's VIP Program, which provides transportation, wellness checks, and a wide-ranging support system for Veterans throughout rural Nevada.
