“Living Clean: Life After Addiction”
Addiction is an equal opportunity destroyer, affecting 21 million Americans ages 12 and over. Most of those who find recovery from alcohol and drug addictions will say they wish they’d have gotten help much sooner than they did. It’s never easy to change lifestyle directions, but it can be done! At this year’s Gala, guests will hear stories of everyday people like you and me who have discovered that life in recovery is truly worth living, thanks to the skills they learned at Rogers, support from family and friends, and a whole lot of hard work!
Menu for Website – Shully’s Cuisine & Events will prepare a duet entrée of steer filet with wild mushroom demi-glace paired with sauté of chicken piccata with a lemon beurre blanc sauce. Optional vegetarian entrée is available upon request.
Contact Laura Miller with dietary restrictions or if you prefer the vegetarian entrée.
After the dinner and program, enjoy dessert, coffee or an evening beverage in new territory as you and your friends explore natural environments and Native American cultures, from the forests of the northeast to southwestern deserts and everywhere in between.
