Fundraiser helps addiction recovery foundation

Since its inception the HUGS Foundation has served over 200 families, helping offset the costs of recovery from chemical dependence. On Feb. 20, supporters of the organization joined for a benefit at BAYarts, raising more than $10,000 – ensuring that more families in Northeast Ohio will be able to receive the help that they need.

“What a perfect evening!” said Dianne Vogt, executive director of the HUGS Foundation. “We couldn’t have asked for more. Surrounded by friends who came out to support our great cause, delicious food by Sweet Melissa’s, a great venue at BAYarts, and great weather! It is also our pleasure to honor Monica Robins for her efforts in bringing awareness to our communities about the heroin epidemic.”

The HUGS Foundation would like to thank the dozens of people who rallied to make this event a great success including Matt and Melissa Ullom, Nancy Heaton, Diana Brewer, Robin Lucak, Barb Berardinis, Susan Gerlach, and Kathy, Scott and Peter Winzig.
