The Eighth Annual Weekend Of Peace will be held on July 29th through 31st 2011 at various locations (TBA). This event, occurring annually since it’s humble beginning in 2004 as an invitational citywide youth basketball tournament, brings healthy alternatives to violence in its myriad of forms (physical; economic; educational; health; sexual; environmental; self-inflicted... et al) to people and communities who may otherwise not be aware of these resources, or know how to gain access. This free-to-the-community event is open to all entities who wish to offer positive programs and services to our communities intended to promote better personal, family, community and global health. We encourage all who value life to participate. This is an invitation for your organization/institution/business to participate in this ambitious project. We invite you to contribute in whatever way you can, we also invite you to take advantage of our broad platform and set up an exhibit outlining your services to the community at one of our many event locations. Contributors and Coalition members: free; Non-contributing businesses: (fee to be determined). We reserve the right to determine which services are healthy to the community.
