On March 12th, a Bachelor Auction will be held at Vapor Night Club in Saratoga to benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention – Capital Region, NY Chapter.
The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) is the leading national not‐for‐profit organization

AFSP also provides programs and resources for survivors of suicide loss and people at risk, and involves them in the work of the Foundation.
The purpose of this event is to:
- Help fund AFSP’s vital programs to prevent suicide and save lives,
- Increase awareness about depression and suicide
- Continue to build AFSP’s presence throughout the Capital Region.
Please please consider donating to this worthy cause.
