October 17, 2013 (Cleveland, Ohio) - On Thursday, November 14, 2013, Recovery Resources will host its 24th, Annual Bronze Key Gala at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Independence, Ohio. The purpose of the event is to raise funds that make treatment accessible to as many people as possible; to raise awareness about the variety of services Recovery Resources provides to the community; and to present the Bronze Key Award to an outstanding community partner.
“We are really looking forward to gathering on November 14h, for our 24th Bronze Key Gala. The opportunity to recognize WKYC Channel 3 News for the tremendous work they continue to do, exposing the realities of mental illness and addiction disorders to a broad population, is humbling and well deserved. And the story of Rob and Carla Brandt, of Robby’s Voice, will undoubtedly touch every person in attendance that evening. We are expecting an enthusiastic crowd, and welcome you to join us.” Debora Rodriguez, President and CEO of Recovery Resources, said.
This year’s recipient, WKYC Channel 3 News, is being recognized for its outstanding effort in revealing the realities of mental illness and addiction disorders to a broad audience. Monica Robins, WKYC Chanel 3 News - Evening Anchor/Senior Health Correspondent, will accept the award. Rob and Carla Brandt, founders of Robby’s Voice, a community-based organization focused on promoting drug addiction awareness and education, will address the audience with their personal story of loss and hope.
WKYC Senior Health Correspondent Monica Robins said, “It's important we all draw attention to the growing problem of heroin in our community. We know it's a problem and the more we talk about it, the greater chance we have of fighting it. We are proud to be part of the Northeast Ohio community and are honored by this award.”
The net proceeds of the event, which raises over $100,000 with help from individual and corporate sponsors, advertisers, and attendees, enables people receive services who would otherwise go without care.
"The partnership between Robby’s Voice, Recovery Resources and WKYC Channel 3 News is a powerful step in fighting this epidemic. Together, we not only have the ability to BREAK THE SILENCE, but to take meaningful action as well”, said Rob Brandt, Robby’s Voice Founder.
