Proceeds support initiatives to help individuals in recovery from addiction receive scholarships to yoga and fitness studios
REVERE – On August 14th 2022, Namastay Sober partnered with Volo Sports and had their 2nd annual dodgeball tournament at Harry Della Russo Stadium. The event had a great turnout that resulted in the organization raising $4,250 in donations. The event saw teams from the City of Revere, led by Michael Hinojosa, Director of Revere Parks and Recreation, Revere Firefighters Local 926, 3rd Alarm Pizza, as well as a Namastay Sober team, other teams, and including one sponsored by Power of Recovery, a local addiction treatment company.
“Without the help of Michael Hinojosa and his team, the event would not have gone so smoothly, said Matt Parlante. “Michael’s efforts really made the difference. He will say that he was ‘just doing his job,’ but that is a modest response from a person who puts the city, people and events ahead of himself.”
Mayor Arrigo joined in on the fun and hopped on a team for a couple of games. The City of Revere’s team won the tournament and plans are already in the works to have next year’s event in Revere again. The first year’s event was held in Seaport. Tournament winners each received a $100 gift card to Lululemon.
