2018 Annual Caron New York Gala
Elaine and Anthony Grillo
with the Richard J. Caron Award of Excellence
The Caron New York Gala has raised over $10 million dollars for treatment scholarships over the years. These scholarships have helped many addicted individuals and their families with limited resources from the New York region gain access to the essential life-saving treatment they need.
Please join us for this special evening when we not only celebrate addiction recovery and raise funds for Caron, but also to introduce Caron and its special services to new friends. The exciting evening will feature live and silent auctions along with amazing musical performances.
