The NCADD-Sacramento Annual Awards Dinner took place on October 30th and featured recovery professionals, volunteers and those in recovery who are making a difference for the Sacramento region.

Highlights included the presentation of the following awards:

  • Harold Cole Prevention Award to Kerri Kaye

  • Bernie Breining Visionary Leadership Award to Stephen and Ellen Grinstead

  • Barbara Woodard Volunteer of the Year to Tommy Smith

Emcee Hillary Burton injected some much appreciated humor and the women from NCADD-Sacramento’s Options for Recovery crafted beautiful bird houses for a live auction. Sacramento County Supervisor Don Nottoli presented a resolution commemorating NCADD’s 40 years of service to Sacramento. Guests were treated to a heartfelt presentation by Mrs. California International Melissa Vanni and graduates of NCADD-Sacramento Treatment and Prevention programs shared their success stories of recovery, thanks to the compassionate and talented NCADD team.
