Summit for Danny Spain Climbers
Exceed Their Fundraising Goal

 

Out team of intrepid climbers are back from their journey to Spain, where they walked the legendary trail of Camino de Santiago. For over one thousand years, the Camino de Santiago, or the Way of St. James, has attracted countless spiritual and adventure-seeking pilgrims alike. From May 18 - 28 they logged in over 90 miles of walking!

 

Climbers pay all of their own expenses, so every dollar raised goes to support subtance abuse treatment for teens. We thank all of you who donated to the climb, which to date has raised over $110,000 to support treatment services for teens at the Daniel Bryant Youth and Family Center.

Amethyst Ball Soars to New Heights
with the British Invasion!

 

The 2015 Amethyst Ball rose to new heights this year as 400 guests packed the Bacara Resort and Spa's main ballroom on Saturday, April 11 for a star-studded gala: The British Invasion. Guests arrived in an entertaining mix of black tie and 60's mod fashion, and were greeted by royal impersonators. The crowd sported Beatles wigs, British Flag mini-dresses and white boots, and various psychedelic outfits.

A sumptuous meal was capped off by a bread pudding dessert—a favorite of Princess Diana— created especially for the evening by Darren McGrady, former chef to the royal family.

The dance floor was packed till the last number as guest were entertained by Peter Noone and his Herman's Hermits band, Eric Burdon of the Animals, and Alan Parsons, known for the Alan Parsons Project and for working with the Beatles and Pink Floyd at Abbey Road.

The event's success was due to the creative planning and hard work of honorary chairs Peter Noone and his wife Mireille, and event chairs Bob Bryant, Susan Neuman, Holly Murphy, Betsy Turner and Anne Towbes. Thanks also to our numerous underwriters and patrons, and to all of those who bid on our silent and live auction items and donated to our special appeal to support CADA's school-based Youth Service Specialists. Special thanks goes to Peter Hilf for his generous gift of $100,000 to support CADA's programs.

Fighting Back
Mentor Program
Online Resource Center
 

Online Mentor Resource Center

The Fighting Back Mentor Program has launched an online resource center: www.mentor-center.org. This website offers mentors and others interested in the program with detailed information about how to become a mentor, or how to get involved in the program in other ways, like volunteering, donating, or helping to recruit mentors. Primarily, the purpose of the site is to provide resources for mentors on activities they can do with their mentee, community events, and in-depth articles on a variety of youth development topics and issues facing children and teens today. Topics cover every area of life — school, personal life, social life, health, substance abuse prevention, gang prevention, and more. It's also a great resource for parents! We hope you will visit the site, make use of the resources you'll find there and give us your feedback.

 

The Mentor Resource Center was made possible by a grant from The Towbes Foundation.
