The Fuse with Mohair Sweets, PTSD Fundraiser in Memory of Ken Barker
Sat, 19 November 2016, 7:30 PM – 11:00 PM CST
Please join The Fuse and their special guests for this third annual fundraiser. In the summer of 2014 we lost our friend Ken Barker after a lengthy battle with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Ken was a great husband, parent and friend. It is fitting to honour his memory with a live concert involving family, friends, colleagues and the public as Ken was a great lover of music and concertsThe first two events raised a total of $30,000 for Heroes are Human (The Tema Conter Memorial Trust). The Trust provides training to first responders in occupations with a high incidence of post-traumatic stress disorder (fire fighters, police, corrections, ambulance etc.).
The Tema Conter Memorial Trust is a hub of education, research, scholarships and training in the fields of operational stress injuries and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
