Getting the Word Out
What are you doing New Year’s Eve? You may have heard that old song:
Maybe it's much too early in the game
Oh, but I thought I'd ask you just the same
What are you doing New Year's?
New Year's eve?
Some go to parties, some out to eat. Some go to special events at their favorite “watering holes”. Some stay home and watch The Ball drop on tv.
Some wish they could celebrate but no place feels safe.
Making plans for New Year’s Eve can be difficult if you are a person who is living in recovery. If one goes anywhere on New Year’s Eve one is confronted by the drinking culture. It is the one night of the year when it is almost impossible to avoid a steady stream of party hosts offering alcoholic drinks. The evening itself may hold unhappy memories for this very reason.
People in recovery, and the people who love them, have a new opportunity to party this year thanks to Sobar. They’re hosting a New Year's Eve Soirée, Sobar-style.
You can learn more and buy your tickets here. You may remember that Sobar and founder Beth Harbinson was one of the winners of the Horizon Foundation’s inaugural Changemaker Challenge in 2017, with a goal to create healthy and appealing non-alcoholic beverages to enhance choices for those who choose not to drink. Since then they have been serving up their creative concoctions at local events. Now they are moving into sponsoring their own alcohol-free events.
Join us in sending out 2019 in true (sober) style, at this black-and-white-themed extravaganza.
