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.
Get fancy with black tie or come in your black jeans and white tee!
Guests will enjoy:
• a relaxed atmosphere in our acoustic lounge and
fireplace room;
• a high-energy, DJ-led dance party;
• catering from the award-winning Chef’s Expressions

• a silent auction, and of course;
• elegant alcohol-free beverages provided by Sobar®

You won’t have to worry about what to do on New Year’s Eve anymore!

From the Sobar website:

I’d like to see this event be wildly successful. I truly believe that there are more than enough people in Columbia/HoCo to support an event like this. They just need to know it is happening. So I’m asking my readers to spread the word around. You may not be interested in this event but you almost certainly know people who are looking for a fun, alcohol free New Year’s Eve celebration.  You may not necessarily know specifically who those people are. Not everyone living in recovery feels comfortable sharing that information.

So I’m laying it on you to share this information. There’s a cool, new party in town and its name is Sobar. Sobar Soirée, to be exact. 

Tell your friends.
