Description

We are excited to announce that our annual fundraiser, A Night For Prevention, will on Friday, May 17th, 2019 from 5:00-8:30PM at Weissgerber's Golden Mast Inn located at W349 N5293 Lacy’s Lane, Okauchee, WI 53069.

Our annual fundraiser is held in the month of May to coincide with National Drug and Alcohol Prevention Week. National Prevention Week is an annual health observance dedicated to increasing public awareness of, and action around, mental and/or substance use disorders. For more information, please visit https://www.samhsa.gov/prevention-week.

Please join us to support our continued efforts to carry out our mission of helping parents raise healthy, successful and drug-free children.

Our special guest this year will be Author, Speaker, and Podcaster, Kimberly Krueger. Kimberly is a wife, mother to 12, and 'Noni' to 4 gorgeous grandsons. Although she has a big (mostly) happy family now, that was not always the case. Years of the effects of drug and alcohol abuse by multiple loved ones just about broke her and her family. After her own wake-up call, Kimberly began to focus on changing the one person she had the power to change: herself. She had no idea the incredible impact this one decision would have on her whole family.

Although drug and alcohol abuse has taken much from her, Kimberly is on a mission to take it all back and help others do the same. Kimberly will share her story and some of her knowledge gained so we can all spark changes in our own lives.

We hope you can join us for this exciting event, which will include an auction, 50/50 raffle, and fish fry. For more information about the event, sponsorship opportunities, or to find out how to purchase tickets with a check, contact the Your Choice office at 262-354-8344 or email katiem@yourchoice-live.org.

We anticipate that funds raised at this event will help us achieve the following goals in 2019:

  • Hosting community driven events on current trends
  • Offer free in-service trainings on different topics through a Get Informed series
  • Continue the marijuana conversation by providing information to communities
  • Continue to assist families by providing information, resources and support

According to the White House “the true cost of the opioid drug epidemic in 2015 was $504 billion." We know that prevention is a cost effective strategy to combatting this problem. Studies have shown that preventing substance abuse can produce benefits for communities that far outweigh the monetary costs. Experts believe that for every $1 spent on substance-abuse prevention, $18 is saved in treatment costs. Despite the proven benefits of prevention, funding for prevention programs in our schools and communities is very limited or non-existent. Please consider supporting our prevention efforts on May 17th, 2019.
