Next SHINE to be Held in 2018: Dean Thullner

Many well wishes are coming Dean Thullner’s way these days. After years of producing a variety of seasonal big community events for the benefit of community, Dean gets to take his first summer off since 2012.

Taking summer off comes at a time when normally production would be in full swing for SHINE.

The press release on Facebook says unforeseen events led to the decision to take a rest in 2017.

SHINE promises to be bigger and better in 2018. “Communities supporting communities” is a mantra of Thullner. SHINE will continue to strive for a world where mental health and addiction carries no stigma. A world where we can talk openly and frankly.
