The event will offer food, including a s’mores bar, drinks, and live karaoke. Attendees will also have the opportunity to bid for fantastic items in a silent auction.

About Picking Me Foundation

Picking Me Foundation NFP is a donor-supported nonprofit that spreads awareness and inspires acceptance for Body Focused Repetitive Behaviors- in particular Dermatillomania aka Skin Picking Disorder– for sufferers, supporters, and educational communities alike. Picking Me strives to encourage individuals to take back control from their OCD-related disorder, sharing why they are #PickingMe over their BFRB. Established in 2016 by Lauren McKeaney who struggles with Dermatillomania yet promotes Mental W(illness) daily, Picking Me serves an under-reported and misunderstood community of Skin Picking Disorder sufferers, who have only been recognized by the medical community as of 2013.
