This year's event has sold out, we are so grateful for the support of our community!


It is the mission of First Call to reduce the impact of alcohol, drugs, and addiction by providing quality resources to individuals, families, and the community. Founded in 1958, First Call services impact nearly 9,000 individuals a year.

Special thanks to our presenting sponsor!

First Call is thrilled to host the Celebration Evening for the first time since 2019. The Celebration Evening is First Call’s signature fundraiser featuring dinner, a live auction, and a premier speaker on the topic of addiction and recovery. This year’s event will feature a conversation with Chef Gregory Gourdet about his personal journey to recovery. In addition to increasing awareness about First Call and substance use disorder, the Celebration Evening raises funds for core mission support of First Call recovery and prevention services.


Gregory Gourdet is a celebrated chef, best-selling author, and television personality. After a seven-year battle with addiction, Gregory got sober in 2009 and has been a vocal advocate for recovery ever since. He hopes that by continually sharing his story, others will be inspired to seek recovery just as people in recovery inspired him to start his own journey.
