About our event

RISE is new, inspirational show written and performed by York musician, magician and comedian Elijah Cross. In this event, Cross uses songs, sleights and silliness to tell the story of surviving his struggles with parental abuse, mental illness and homelessness, with the aim of encouraging others to not let anything keep them from using their own talents to put good in their community and the world.

As a musician and magician, Cross, 35, has performed in many popular performance venues in and around York; as a comedian, he has entertained audiences at the Improv in L.A. and Orlando, as well as the acclaimed Comedy Studio in Boston.

$10,000 in ticket sales from this event will benefit NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness), the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. Since people living with mental illness need a community that supports them, their families and their recovery, NAMI advocates for access to services, treatment, supports and research, and is steadfast in its commitment to raise awareness and build hope for all of those in need. NAMI helped Elijah when he moved to York from California in 2011; with the need for mental health services growing while the ability to meet the demand is declining, Elijah saw an opportunity to give back to those who helped give him a start in a new home. 

This event will take place September 29, 2017, at The Pullo Center in York, PA. Integrity Bank and Focus Behavioral Health are sponsoring the event; more sponsors TBA.

Sponsorship Opportunities

As a sponsor, your brand will be visible to those attending the show at the 1,016-seat Pullo Center, on the Penn State University campus in York. Depending on the package you select, you'll be invited to speak on stage before the show, your company/business will be promoted online, and your logo will be visible on stage for the entire show - and actually featured during a key moment in finale, in which a member of the audience is brought on stage for a life-changing moment they will then associate with your brand. Space in the theater lobby for an info table is available as well.

About 1 in 5 adults in the U.S. have a mental illness, and while that number is growing, the ability to meet the need for mental health services is eroding. Left unaided, the worst of these illness have the potential to seriously limit or end lives.

Everyone in York with a mental illness (or any illness) should be able to have access to help, which in many cases, is live-saving help. Sponsoring RISE will provide NAMI with the ability to continue giving that help and associate your brand with a committment to bettering lives.

I'm a professional musician, magician and comedian in York, PA - links to my work are in the uploaded document.

I have lived and entertained in and around York for the past six years. I'm a very well-known member of the music and arts community here, and since I'm dedicated to helping others with my talents, I am often involved in events set up to improve lives and conditions in the city. 

I'm working with Susan Hein and Danielle Dennis of NAMI York to make this event happen.
