The Solace Tree Receives Support

 from Swimming for Solace Concert

Reno, NV (June 3, 2013) – Robby Schlesinger, along with the people supporting his Swimming for Solace efforts, put on a concert at the Knitting Factory in May to support the Solace Tree. With the help of these bands, they were able to raise nearly $1,000 for the Solace Tree: Small Drawings, Never Nudes, Weapons of Mass Creation, Bazooka Zoo, New Car Smell, Boggan and SubDocta. Several artists and photographers were on hand to sell their work, with a percentage of proceeds going to the cause. They included: Andrew Legarza, Jayem de Ocampo, Iain Harrison, Thomas Crawford, Devin Fitzee and Josh Turner.

The Solace Tree, Inc. a 501c (3) non-profit based in Reno, NV, with a mission to provide peer support, information and education to schools and the community to promote healing and recovery for grieving children, teens and their families who are affected by loss. For more information, visit
