In loving memory of Elizabeth "Lizzy" Tolzman, a suicide awareness benefit will be at Reggie's Brewhouse, 220 N. Cedar Ave., in Owatonna on Saturday, May 14. The event will include a silent auction  from 4-8:30PM and a Beer Bash from 7-9PM.

The silent auction will include:

  • Twins and Gophers items
  • Framed paintings from local artists
  • wall hangings
  • a variety of baskets
  • Harley Davidson items
  • gift cards and certificates
  • music stand and chair

Lizzy's friend Amber says that Lizzy was a free spirit who loved music and enjoyed reading. Lizzy especially liked The Little Mermaid.

Because Lizzy liked to help others, the proceeds of this suicide awareness event will go toward:

  • Suicide awareness and prevention rally that is planned for June
  • Tolzman family
  • Open Arms Yellow Ribbon - Their motto is "It is Okay to ask for help."

Amber also mentioned in her email that they are hoping to start a support group.

The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is (800) 273-8255.
