We must be united in the war against addiction! My mission is to unite organizations,support groups, and everyone else who needs a helping hand. I am here to educate equip and develop a Recovery resource Network. My hope is that everyone gets the help they need and no one is left behind or alone in their fight for freedom from addiction. Join me and lets fight the good fight! Our Philosophy: Instigate, Agitate, Educate, and Liberate!
We are honored to welcome award-winning ABC News anchor and parent, Elizabeth Vargas, as this year’s Winter Wish Gala emcee. Elizabeth knows firsthand the challenges that addiction poses on a family, and shares her experience in her recent memoir, “Between Breaths: A Memoir of Panic and Addiction.”
“Alcoholism and addiction have touched millions of people in this country. If you don’t suffer from it, you know someone who does. In the face of this disease we are all equal, the playing field leveled. If we are truly fortunate, we have employers who did not abandon us, family who stood by us and perhaps someone who helped us find our way back, who never forgot that beneath all the appalling behavior there was a human being.”
Join us on Tuesday, December 12 to hear more about Elizabeth’s journey and how we are supporting parents with the tools and compassionate guidance they need to help their child struggling with addiction. You can participate by purchasing tickets, table sponsorships, journal ads or making a donation.
We are thrilled to honor corporate citizens Facebook and David Katz, Partner at Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz; philanthropists Christine Mack and Natasha Silver Bell; and present the James E. Burke award to Tom McLellan, former deputy director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy.
We hope we can count on your critical support. Funds raised from the Gala ensure we can continue to provide families with free, lifesaving support, like our Parent Helpline, one-on-one Parent Coaching program and community education presentations.
