The Lincoln County Drug and HOPE Court would like to express our gratitude to everyone that helped make the Ride for Recovery a huge success. $1381.00 was raised to support our programs for the next year! This money will help fund drug and alcohol free events for participants and graduates, and provide support for the Mentor Program.
The event was organized by Willy Smith from ReConnections Counseling with help from volunteers including participants of the programs, staff from Reconnections Counseling, Celebrate Recovery and our Mentors. We are fortunate to have such strong support for our programs and appreciate all of the hard work it takes to make this community a better place.
We received generous donations and support from the Sunset Chapter of the Alky Angels, Automotive Solutions, ReConnections A&D Counseling, Georgies Beachside Grill, Barrel Head Building Supply, Birdies Irish Faire, South Beach Market, Attorney Bruce McCrum, Crazy Eights Tattoo and Piercing, Edge Art Gallery, Snap-on Tools Newport, England Marine Supply, Fish Tails Café, All Rides Motor Sports, Heceta Head Lighthouse B&B, Tradewinds Newport, Newport Rental, Toby Murry Motors, Old World Tattoo, Smoke and Shop Toledo, Newport Napa Auto Parts, The Kite Company, Reanimate Me Cafe Toledo, JC Thriftway Toledo, Seagull Haven and Mike Douglas Hand Crafted Arts.
Hon. Thomas Branford, the Drug and HOPE court Judge said, “sincere thanks to all who participated in the Ride for Recovery. Tragically, addiction is a scourge for so many lives. Those in the Ride for Recovery recognize that and have been providing ongoing help for those in Drug and Hope Courts in their struggle for good health. The people in the Ride for Recovery exemplify selfless humanitarianism. We all owe them a big thank-you for their efforts to help.”
