A message from Erica Norris
I’d like to tell you why the Picnic is so important to me personally. You see, I am a recipient of the Scholarship Fund. Without it, I would not have been able to finish my stay at Alina Lodge. When I ran out of funds, Alina Lodge did not discharge me. I stayed until my counselor said I was ready to go.
The Gratitude Picnic and the Scholarship Fund is what made this possible. It is my honor to be the Chairperson of the 2019 Gratitude Picnic.
You can help support the Scholarship Fund with a purchase of a Gratitude Journal ad, a raffle ticket or sponsorship. The Journal ad form is attached, and you may write a message in honor of your counselor, a loved one, a memorial or a simple message of hope to others. You never know the life you have touched.
We have so much fun planned for June 8th! We have a special guest speaker, James Wahlberg, Executive Director of the Mark Wahlberg Foundation, with a powerful message of recovery. We will have great music, food and games for the children. At its core, the Gratitude Picnic does more than just raise money. It serves as a day of fellowship for alumni, current students, friends, families and staff. Through time, it has come to signify so much more… it is inspiring.
By attending the Picnic, you see the lives that have been changed by your generosity. Every penny counts. Please give what you can. Visit the 2019 Gratitude Picnic Page to see all of the giving opportunities.
“Every penny counts.”
I hope you will join us on June 8th. Help make miracles come true for someone in need of a life in recovery. I’d like to thank all of the Gratitude Picnic donors – past and present. Thank you for giving my daughters their mother back. Thank you for giving my husband his wife back. By the grace of God and Alina Lodge, I am sober today. Thank you.
With Hope and Gratitude,
2019 Gratitude Picnic Committee
