About Us

Into the Sunlight  first started as only a concert and festival for suicide prevention and awareness, the first concert, Sing into the Sunlight, taking place in May of 2013. Faith Banca and Rebecca Cruz were only about 14 when they decided they wanted to create a benefit concert. They finally put on their first of the events when they were 16 years old. Since then they have held 3 concerts and additional events. They have also decided to expand from a simple concert and festival to an organization. Sing into the Sunlight became Into the Sunlight and is now an organization with the mission to raise awareness for suicide prevention, end the stigma of mental illnesses, and help people find happiness in their lives through multiple events.
Now both in college, Faith a psychology major at Wilkes University and Rebecca a journalism major at Bergen Community College, they've been using their new knowledge base and connections to continue to expand their organization. Between studying, they, along with their committee, are working hard to build Into the Sunlight. Zak Kandiel, the innovative Vice Presidnet of Into the Sunlight, is only a junior in high school, attending Becton Regional High School. Many members of the committee are both in high school or attending college.
