The be nice. program is a four-step action plan that's proven to save lives - to notice, invite, challenge and empower themselves and their peers. This program equips individuals in schools, businesses, faith institutions, and communities with the knowledge and confidence to take action when it comes to mental health and suicide prevention.

It is a way for us to give back and support a great program all while encouraging family bonding" says Pam Glass, President at Kohler Expos, Inc, the company that produces the event.
