Purple Sunshine: A Prince Tribute Party Supporting Sunshine House's Mobile Overdose Prevention Site

On April 21, 2016, Prince Rogers Nel­son died from an acci­den­tal fen­tanyl over­dose at his home in Chan­has­sen, Min­neso­ta.

Today, the opi­oid epi­dem­ic con­tin­ues to take lives around the world and our coun­try is no excep­tion. Between Jan­u­ary and June 2022, an aver­age of twen­ty peo­ple died each day in Cana­da due to opi­oid tox­i­c­i­ty.

Mean­while, in Man­i­to­ba, the con­ser­v­a­tive gov­ern­ment active­ly pur­sues restric­tive and dan­ger­ous leg­is­la­tion such as Bill 33, while grass­roots com­mu­ni­ty orga­ni­za­tions like Sun­shine House devel­op and imple­ment pro­gres­sive and trans­for­ma­tive ini­tia­tives like their MOPS (Mobile Over­dose Pre­ven­tion Site) to meet and help peo­ple where they’re at: on the streets and in the com­mu­ni­ty.

On Fri­day, April 21, at the Tallest Pop­py, we are cel­e­brat­ing the life and music of Prince, on what will be the sev­enth anniver­sary of his death. Net pro­ceeds from the event will be donat­ed to Sun­shine House to help sus­tain their work in the com­mu­ni­ty, par­tic­u­lar­ly around harm reduc­tion and over­dose pre­ven­tion.

Share in all things Prince with Mama Cutsworth, DJ Hun­ni­cutt, Wan­da G and Hari Vajai­jay. Doors 9 PM. $15 at the door. Thanks and love to our part­ners Syn­onym Art Con­sul­ta­tion, the Tallest Pop­py and Sun­shine House.
