Late Suicide Silence Vocalist Mitch Lucker Honored By Mental Health America of Los Angeles
The memory of Mitch Lucker will live on through Mental Health America of Los Angeles, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting mental health recovery and wellness. MHALA was recently the beneficiary of a Suicide Silence charity gig, which raised nearly $17,000. In response to Suicide Silence’s generous act and the fans who made it possible, MHALA dedicated its donated clothing department to Mitch Lucker.
Suicide Silence shared the news via the band’s Facebook page:
As a result of December’s benefit show, we’re happy to announce that Mental Health America of Los Angeles will be officially naming their donated clothing department “The Mitch Lucker Clothing Closet.” We’d like to thank MHALA & all of our fans for helping to make this great honor possible. Let’s all continue to live positively & make 2016 an incredible year!
Mental Health America of Los Angeles also posted on Facebook:
We are honored to have been the beneficiary of a charity concert held by the band Suicide Silence. Their donation is helping us to build our homeless healthcare center where people living on the streets with mental illness can come and get their needs met. This center will help people get connected to the services that they need. The band has chosen to name our clothing closet in honor of their departed lead singer, Mitch Lucker, who helped begin the legacy of giving that led them to us. We could not be more grateful. Thank you to Suicide Silence and to your compassionate fans!
