Victoria “Rikki” Siegel was only 18 years old when she died of a drug overdose on June 6, 2015. She was the oldest of seven siblings, a recent high school graduate, and a dreamer with a tremendous heart. In her memory, her parents David and Jackie Seigel created Victoria’s Voice Foundation to bring awareness to the dangers of opioid addiction and to champion ways to reduce drug experimentation, addiction, and overdose.
Bliss Media was proud to support Victoria’s Voice Foundation at their “Evening to Save Lives Gala” at the Westgate Resort Las Vegas on October 26th. The star-studded guest list included Barry Manilow, Dionne Warwick, Scott Stapp, Lee Greenwood, Michael Lohan, Daniel Baldwin, as well as reality stars Gretchen Rossi, Teresa Giudice and Phaedra Parks. Reno philanthropist Stacie Mathewson was also present and accepted the Victoria’s Wings Award.
The event raised over $1.3 million for the Victoria’ Voice Foundation. These funds will help support youth and families facing opioid addiction and initiatives such as Victory Clubs that provide services and perks for teenagers across the country who stay clean and sober.
