Malden Overcoming Addiction rang in the New Year with their second annual Celebrate Sober event at Club 24 in Malden. The sold out event brought together over a hundred people of all ages to eat, talk, dance and celebrate the New Year alcohol free. Massachusetts State Representative Paul Brodeur kicked off the evening speaking of his support for MOA and their work to open The Bridge Recovery Center in Malden.
Malden Police Chief Kevin Molis was also on hand to welcome guests. Malden City Councilor Barbara Murphy donated all of the beverages for the water/juice bar, which she manned along with Councilor Peg Crowe. Food for the event was generously donated by Floramo's Restaurant, Dockside Restaurant (Malden), Bobby C's and LaQchara. Pizza was donated by the DiSario family.
This free night of fun would not have been possible without the many volunteers who checked tickets, set up tables, decorated, served food and much more. MOA established this event, which they hope to continue annually, to support those in any stage of recovery and to help those new to recovery see that there is plenty of fun to be had when you Celebrate Sober. #TogetherWeCan
