Description

Community of Hope, Inc., Community Speaks Out, and Groton Alliance for Substance Abuse Prevention are excited to announce The Emerald Ball fundraiser event being held on Saturday, January 12th, 2019 at The Mystic Marriott Hotel & Spa.

The Emerald Ball is being held to honor and support individuals in recovery, individuals who are struggling with addiction, and those who have lost their lives to the disease. We have chosen an emerald to symbolize this event because the emerald is a precious gem that represents mercy, compassion, universal love, and how all things are interconnected.

Your support will allow us to continue our collective missions and positively impact the lives of those struggling with the disease of addiction. The latest statistics indicate that over 1.000 individuals lost their lives to an overdose in 2017, ranging in ages from 17 to 71, coming from all socioeconomic backgrounds; highlighting that the disease of addiction has no boundaries.

We thank you for your support, sponsorship, and donations.
