2020 Celebration Evening 

COVID-19 Update 


Out of an overabundance of caution, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Celebration Evening, originally scheduled for September 24, 2020.


Every year, First Call hosts the Celebration Evening featuring fundraising activities and a premier speaker. In addition to raising awareness about First Call and substance use disorder as a disease, the event raises money for the services First Call provides to over 60,000 individuals annually, including substance use disorder assessments, outpatient treatment, recovery support, family services, a crisis call center and community prevention education.


Funding is still needed for core mission support. Your tax-deductible gift can help mitigate the financial impact of our transition to telehealth, the cancellation of the Celebration Evening, and help ensure that those impacted by substance use disorder have access to the life-saving support First Call can provide during this unprecedented time.
