The 2008 POWER Promises ~ A Night of Hope benefit is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 15, at Heinz Field in the West Club Lounge. One of Pittsburgh’s premier fundraising events, POWER Promises will feature graduates of the organization’s specialized alcohol and drug treatment programs whose stories of recovery are a testament to their courage. The event, hosted by Honorary Chairs, Dr. Thomas and Joy Starzl, will include dinner, raffles and auctions, and entertainment by local jazz artist Etta Cox. The evening will also include the presentation of the “Window of Hope” award; this year’s honoree is the Women’s Leadership Initiative of GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare.
All proceeds will benefit POWER (Pennsylvania Organization for Women in Early Recovery), a local non-profit organization that provides gender-specialized quality treatment and support services for women who are changing their lives through recovery from addiction to alcohol and other drugs.
Reservations are available from POWER for $100 each. Patron reservations are $150. For more information or to reserve your seat, please call 412.243.7535, ext. 223, or visit www.power-recovery.com.
