Press release submitted by George Smith and Gloria J. Smith

Adam Smith was a student at St. Ambrose University. He loved playing soccer, and was a gifted musician. He was kind, thoughtful, and full of life, until he developed mental illness. We lost our beloved Adam when he was so tortured by paranoia and delusions that he felt forced to take his own life. We will never recover from it. AdamFest is our attempt, however, to try to bring some good out of this tragedy. We are organizing a fun-filled day of music and activities that is family-friendly. All the profit from AdamFest will go to either mental health research or to Rock Island County, to help people in need pay for medication.
