The Charleston Center is looking for 50 friends; you could be one of them!
Charleston Center is aided in its mission by the Charleston Development Corporation, a non-profit 501c Corporation utilized by its Advisory Board for fundraising. Specifically, the mission of the Charleston Center is to "(sic)..to help the residents of Charleston County live productive lives, free from alcohol, other drugs, and addictive behaviors. They promote recovery for those whose lives are affected by substance use and related conditions."
As part of their efforts a fundraiser is being held to help raise $10,000. This $10,000 is part of an overall goal to reach $50,000 for the 7 identified areas of service:
- Inpatient Services
- Outpatient Services
- Prevention Services
- Education Services
- Alcohol and Drug Safety Action Program
- Drug Screening Lab
- Methadone/Suboxone Services
How can you help?
You can become a friend of the Charleston Center in one of three ways:
- Donate to the Charleston Center Development Corporation
- Commit to be one of the "50 friends" by raising $200 in pledges for the "50 friends" Yoga event May 24th
Either of these can be accomplished by contacting Patty Tennett or Phill Botham at 843.830.0509 or 843.743.9989.
Lastly, if you choose not to be one of the "50 friends" you can attend an informative community Yoga session. This session will be an hour in duration lead by local Yogi's Mark Knowles and Gail Corvette: two of the fifty friends who have pledged to raise $200 for the Center. Price of admission is a $10 donation for those not making the fundraising commitment.
Should you choose to attend the Yoga class you will be treated to not just a Yoga session but a healthy buffet immediately following sponsored by Limehouse Produce® and Whole Foods®. There will also be live Bluegrass music and drawings for prizes. Prizes for this event include a free beach-house rental for 4 days and 3 nights in Myrtle Beach, SC.
So, come on out and show your support for the Charleston Center and get your Yoga on!
