A Fun & Sober St. Patrick's Day in Atlanta
The St. Patrick's Day charity event this past St. Paddy's day was quite a success. Several representatives of Sunrise Detox in Alpharetta attended the fun and alcohol-free evening party, along with an estimated hundreds of others from the greater Atlanta region. Comedian Tom Simmons provided the spark that left the audience laughing much of the night.
Sunrise Detox helped sponsor the evening with a $500 donation as a "Pot of Gold Sponsor", along with host Caron of Atlanta and many other treatment providers and supporters.
Often these alcohol and drug free events are the most satisfying activities for individuals working hard every day in the treatment industry.
Despite our society's tendency to associate alcohol with socializing, every time individuals gather for fun specifically without the influences of drugs and alcohol, the fun seems all the more engaging and fulfilling. Even our guest celebrities and rock stars notice... and many of them have gone on to purposefully produce shows intended to "prove" that you can have a great, fun time without the drugs and alcohol. Shown are some snap shots from some of our friends at the event.. photos were not allowed inside the venue, so these are limited to our industry friends and associates networking in the halls and after the show.
