East Bay Center to Hold 2nd Annual Gala
East Bay Center will hold its 2nd Annual Gala on Thursday evening, September 24th, 2015 from 6-9 p.m. at Blithewold Mansion, Gardens & Arboretum at 101 Ferry Road, Bristol. Please show your support of East Bay Center's annual signature event as they reach out to the community to raise funds, recognize leaders, and tell the story of their work - leading lives to hope and recovery.
This year, the East Bay Center will recognize the tireless work of Chris Herren, national spokesman for recovery through treatment, and Providence Journal sports writer Bill Reynolds, who collaborated to tell Chris' story about addiction and recovery, spreading the word of recovery, hope, and saying no to drugs. Patrick Little of WPRI Channel 12 will serve as the event’s emcee.
