Recently, we lost our friend, mentor, and You Will Rise co-founder, Linda Regula. There aren’t enough words to express our sorrow and pain. Our hearts go out to her family and to anyone fortunate enough to know and love Linda. She taught us all how to rise in the face of adversity. Linda impacted countless lives through her passion for art and helping others.

Now it is our turn to RISE TOGETHER and carry her legacy forward.

You Will Rise is partnering with ArtCOZ to host a virtual celebration of Linda’s life on Saturday, October 17, 2020.  The event takes place from 1-5 pm (EST) / 10 am – 2 pm (PST). Watch in the video window above, or on the following platforms: You Will Rise Project Facebook page, ArtCOZ Facebook page, You Will Rise Project YouTube channel.

Proceeds raised during the event will benefit the Linda Regula Legacy Scholarship Fund, an annual scholarship that will be awarded by You Will Rise to a high school senior who uses the arts to overcome obstacles in their lives.

The Rise Together event will feature performances, tributes, readings, artwork, auction items, memories shared by those who knew and loved her, and a special appearance by Dolly Parton.
