Gratitude Weekend Moves to a Larger Venue!
With gratitude, we invite you to join the Caron Renaissance and Ocean Drive staff for a weekend of festivities in the spirit of the Thanksgiving holiday and family recovery.

From a humble Thanksgiving dinner in 2001, prepared by alumni and served to the patients on residential property, this annual tradition has grown into a weekend of events honoring and giving thanks to our alumni and families who continue to believe in our mission and live a fulfilling life in recovery.

Due to the overwhelming and positive response and attendance of our alumni and families we are excited to share that the Gratitude Weekend celebration is moving to a larger venue! The 2018 Caron Renaissance and Ocean Drive Gratitude Weekend will be held at the Boca Raton Resort and Club in Boca Raton, FL on Friday, November 16 – Sunday, November 18, 2018.

The Boca Resort allows us to better meet the needs of our alumni and families.  This ALL-INCLUSIVE venue will make it easier for everyone to attend and share fellowship without having to worry about transportation while maximizing the time we can spend reconnecting during this special time of year!

Keeping that in mind, we ask that all Gratitude Weekend attendees to please stay at the resort, without extra cost to you! This is the only location at which Caron will reserve a room block and you will find the room rates competitive with surrounding facilities.

Guests may call the central reservation line at 1-888-557-6375 and The Boca Resort agents will assist you in making a reservation. Please be sure to mention the code ACARON to receive the special room rate. You may also book online by visiting the link below. Reservation cut-off date is October 17, 2018.

We look forward to spending our weekend with you to help us celebrate our Gratitude Weekend Honoree, Robert Johnson!
