PAACA Celebrating 30 Years of Gratitude
Positive Action Against Chemical Addiction, Inc., known throughout the South Coast as PAACA, will celebrate 30 years of service to the region at a special event in New Bedford’s Skyroom, 651 Orchard Street, New Bedford MA on Saturday, March 23, 2013.
PAACA has expanded its reach and scope to better serve the community by adding empowerment programs that build hope such as youth development, employment and training, housing, education and support programs. “That work doesn’t happen without hundreds of volunteers, staff, government leaders, law enforcement, educators, and clergy who have been working tirelessly with PAACA to make HOPE happen.”, said Carl J. Alves, Executive Director.
The celebration begins at 7pm with a diverse mixture of fun and entertainment, featuring R&B band “Urban Burn”.
DJ Biggy is in the house, and a cash bar and delicious heavy hors d’oeuvres will be served. In addition to a terrific raffle, there are great stations where attendees can receive a chair massage, paraffin hand wax treatments by Brenda Gomes, psychic readings with Georgette, semi-permanent tattoos by Miss Lynne & Roy and much more.
The event is open to the public and tickets ($30) are available online at www.paaca.org or by calling 508.400.1080.
