Better Beginnings Banquet

Nov. 6, 2023
5:30-7:30 p.m.

Daphne Civic Center, Daphne, Alabama

Are you looking for a way to get involved and help people in recovery? Attend the Better Beginnings Banquet benefiting The Jace Waters Foundation for Transitional Living of Alabama November 6, 2023, from 5:30-7:30 PM in the Willow Room at the Daphne Civic Center.

While learning about The Jace Waters Foundation and its mission, dinner from L.A. Barbecue will be served and a silent auction will take place.

​Monetary donations from the Better Beginnings Banquet provide scholarships to get people in need into transitional living (also known as sober living or a recovery residence).

​Going into a good sober living environment after treatment gives people a much higher chance of a successful recovery by placing them in a surrounding that helps them learn how to handle day-to-day stress and anxiety without turning to a drink or drug.
