It has been a beautiful summer at Sun Street Centers. Each July brings new opportunities for all of us here, and this month has brought forth a multitude of new faces, partners, and deeper friendships with our supporters.
On July 15th, Sun Street Centers held our fourth annual Summer Soiree at the beautiful home of Lino and Terri Belli. This annual event is special, because as you may know, all funds raised at the Soiree are directed into the Anne C. Leach Men’s Residential Scholarship Fund. This fund was created for successful alumni who have completed treatment in our residential program. The scholarship, named after a wonderful board member, supports alumni who may not have had the financial means to pay for the program, but had the sincere desire to recover, heal and thrive.
On July 15th, our donors showed us just how much they support our alumni who conquered their addiction. We raised over $10,000, which will go toward supporting one to three new alumni from our program. As a special treat, we got to hear the powerful stories of two scholarship recipients, Andre Lyles and Thomas Fischera. Both men stated that when they heard that they were selected for this scholarship, they felt uplifted by the whole community.
We support our clients with your help, by bestowing a gift that ultimately helps our alumni remain stable, sober, and thriving because they have one less thing to worry about, and the knowledge that YOU are rooting for them.
