Thank You!

We are full of gratitude to everyone who supported our 2023 Scholarship Celebration on Saturday, October 7, 2023. Here are a few highlights!

  • Our Fund a Future need was $175,000. Our dream goal was $200,000. We raised $223,000. Unbelievable!
  • Our overall fundraising total, including sponsorships, tickets, raffles, and live auction, is more than $400,000.
  • We sold out the event with 500 attendees, 200 of whom joined us for the very first time.
  • We had 65 scholarship recipients who volunteered their time to make the event successful, and 18 alumni who joined us to show our new students that success is possible.

We are so grateful to our hardworking dinner committee, board, ambassadors, staff, and amazing volunteers. Thank you to Andrew, Amber, and Chris for sharing their recovery stories, StoryTrack for producing our videos, and Tim Ezell for hosting the evening and sharing his journey with us. 

We truly cannot thank you enough for your continued generosity. We look forward to continuing this journey with you to help even more students in 12-step recovery programs achieve their educational dreams.

Thank You to Our Event Sponsors!
