Join us for the annual Ball Homes Night of Hope, held at the Lexington Opera House!
This year’s featured speaker is Tara Conner, Miss USA 2006 and Recovery Advocate. Through her work, she shares her experience, strength and hope with audiences throughout the United States. Conner was crowned Miss USA in 2006. In December of that year, she entered the Caron Treatment Center and completed treatment for alcohol and drug addiction. She has since celebrated 12 years of sobriety.
Tara hopes to raise awareness that addiction is a disease and that many people go on to lead a healthy, productive life in recovery. She especially wants educators, families and professionals to know that sobriety at an early age is achievable and that it greatly enhances life’s possibilities. Her TED Talk, USA Today op. ed. piece and television appearances have helped to shine a light on the Recovery Movement.
In addition to our featured speaker, Hope Center clients will share their stories of hope and gaining a spiritual and physical home through the Hope Center.
The Ball Homes Night of Hope is the Hope Center’s premier fundraising and awareness event. Our goal is to raise funds and awareness for our programs and foster understanding about the plight of the homeless in our community.
