Burgers & Bands 2019

Burgers and Bands Severna Park 2019 was a huge success, we are still tallying the receipts but we estimate we have raised $80,000 in cash and in kind donations; almost double last year’s final numbers. But the real win for us was the community. When we started Burgers and Bands we wanted to open a conversation about mental health. We wanted to help our community see they are not alone and we wanted to make mental health just another part of our daily dialog. This community is helping us do that.

We cannot wait until October when we get to do this again. We are absolutely beyond thrilled to be bringing Burgers and Bands to Annapolis for the first time ever.

Thank you for your continued support.

- The Brennan Family

Why we do this


Why we do this.

For two years Ann Brennan and Ethan Brennan walked for 24 hours to raise funds for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.  While these walks raised thousands of dollars for the cause, the two felt like something was missing.  The reason the family had become involved in suicide prevention in the first place was to bring awareness to an issue that has plagued their community for years.  


In 2016, the Brennan family teamed up with their friends and neighbors Jennifer and Kevin Bonk to bring the fundraising into our own community by creating an event like no other, Burgers and Bands for Suicide Prevention.  Burgers and Bands is an event built in and around our community to not only bring awareness and raise funds for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, but also to show people in our community that they are not alone.  


Throughout the 8 hour musical event, we have bands rotating on a 30-45 minute schedule; community services tables; and of course great food and community.  Burgers and Bands for Suicide Prevention was created as a way to bring our community together around a cause that has affected far too many people, both young and old in Severna Park.
