About the Event
LIFE Center Stage, Community Coalition for a Safe & Healthy Morris, Morris County Stigma-Free, Morris County and Partnership for a Drug-Free New Jersey created a Songwriters Scholarship Contest to help raise awareness of the opioid epidemic that has adversely impacted far too many lives.

Seven finalists, Heather Baldwin, Kathy Moser, Laura Grzanka, Michael Cavallo, Terry Dunne, Carolyn Messina, and Tina Lipson will perform at the Knock Out Opioid Abuse Day Concert held on October 4 from 6 – 8pm at Malcolm Forbes Amphitheater at Morristown Memorial Hospital 100 Madison Ave, Morristown, NJ. There will be a special performance by the winners of the 2017 Knock Out Opioid Abuse Contest, the winners from Shoutdown Drugs and guest speakers include Barbara Kauffman from the Community Coalition for a Safe & Healthy Morris and Angela Conover from Partnership for a Drug-Free New Jersey.
Audience members will be invited to vote for their favorite anthem song by using a poll on LifeCenterStage.org The winning song based on popular vote will be announced after The Inspire Project performance, and become the Knockout Opioid Abuse Anthem for the year 2018-2019! The winner will be awarded $500, recorded in a professional studio and havep private vocal coaching and productions by Lorraine Ferro.
Knock Out Opioid Abuse day is statewide single-day initiative, organized by the Partnership for a Drug-Free New Jersey and The Community Coalition for a Safe & Healthy Morris, in cooperation with the New Jersey Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services and the Governor’s Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse, will mobilize the prevention and treatment communities, community leaders and concerned citizens to raise awareness of the potential for dependency on prescribed pain medicine and its link to heroin abuse rates in our state. Teams of volunteers across the state will visit physician and dental offices, as well as homes in local communities, to distribute this vital information.
