Every day, at least two people in Connecticut die from an opioid overdose. Connecticut REALTORS, iHeartMedia and WTNH News 8 are teaming up to help reduce that staggering number. Today marks the start of a multi-month campaign to raise money and build awareness surrounding Connecticut’s opioid crisis.
The campaign will air on all media platforms including television, radio, digital and social media. The highlight of the campaign will be a concert headlined by Academy of Country Music & Country Music Association “Entertainer of the Year,” Keith Urban. Titled ‘A Concert for Recovery’ at Mohegan Sun Arena on Sunday, November 17th at 7:00pm.
Proceeds from the concert ticket sales will be donated by CT REALTORS to the CTREALTORS Foundation to provide charitable grants to organizations in CT addressing the opioid crisis.
