Malden Overcoming Addiction (MOA) rang in the New Year with its third annual Celebrate Sober event at Club 24 in Malden. MOA Board Member Dana Brown welcomed the crowd of over 100 people to eat, talk, dance and celebrate the New Year substance-free.
Ward 5 Councillor Barbara Murphy donated all the beverages for the water/juice bar, which she manned along with Marie Brown. Food for the event was generously donated by Floramo’s Restaurant, Dockside Restaurant (Malden), Bobby C’s, Kane’s Donuts and Malden Stop & Shop. Pizza was donated by Liz Hart (Tailored for Success). This free night of fun would not have been possible without the many amazing and dedicated volunteers who checked tickets, set up tables, decorated, served food and did so much more.
MOA has established this annual event 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.
