Recovery for Life Gala
Friday, September 27, 2019

Tavistock Country Club | Haddonfield, NJ

On Friday, September 27th, more than 300 people gathered at Tavistock Country Club for Maryville’s annual Recovery for Life Gala. Guests enjoyed an evening of live music and dancing, dinner, a silent auction, and engaging speakers who shared their personal journeys.

This year, Maryville presented Paul Holmgren with the Advocacy in Action Award. Paul, who has spent 40 years with the Philadelphia Flyers, currently serving as Senior Advisor, is an AA sponsor, addiction recovery advocate, and role model to his peers and players. This year marks Paul’s 25th year in recovery.

Darryl Strawberry, eight time MLB All-Star and four time World Series champion, served as our guest speaker for the evening. With more than 15 years in recovery, today Darryl is an ordained minister; motivational speaker and author; and alongside his wife Tracy, operates a ministry focused on helping people achieve recovery from addiction.

Maryville is grateful to the volunteers, attendees, sponsors, and supporters who helped make the evening a great success.

Cooper River Park | Pennsauken, NJ

On Saturday, June 15th, Maryville’s 12th Annual Race for Recovery 5K and Fun Run brought more than 200 people together to raise funds for the Peter P. Black IV Scholarship Fund at Maryville. The fund was founded by Kathleen “Kate” Holt in honor of her son Peter, who passed away in 2004 from a substance use disorder. Kate shared Peter’s story prior to the race start, encouraging those in attendance to continue supporting and promoting the need for addiction prevention, treatment, and support services.

Once again this year, it was a beautiful day for Maryville’s Race for Recovery, with sunshine, comfortable temperatures, and a beautiful breeze. The event was the most successful race yet, raising more than $15,000 for the scholarship fund, which assists individuals unable to afford treatment.
