Caron Greater Philadelphia Gala

Tuesday, November 30th 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM | Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts

Caron Greater Philadelphia Gala

Caron Treatment Centers is an internationally recognized not-for-profit dedicated to addiction and behavioral healthcare treatment, research, prevention, and addiction medicine education. Last year, with the help of our generous donors, Caron provided 2.2 million dollars in financial assistance to those seeking treatment from the Greater Philadelphia Region. Event proceeds are allocated for scholarship to increase access to treatment as well as for programmatic support to ensure unwavering and innovative services that complement the inpatient and outpatient treatment experience and significantly increase recovery outcomes. Given the dramatic increase in overdose deaths this year in the city of Philadelphia alone (1,214) – Caron needs our community’s support now more than ever.

Our Greater Philadelphia Gala will celebrate recovery and family, provide hope and inspiration, and connect our Caron community. We hope you will join us to hear stories of strength and courage, and enjoy an evening of fellowship, food, entertainment, and an awards program to recognize all those in recovery.
