Fellowship House Foundation is holding its 10th annual New Year's Eve Sobriety Dance at 9 p.m. Dec. 31 in Our Lady of Lebanon Catholic Church hall, 1110 Niagara St., to benefit its building fund.
The dance will be preceded at 8 p.m. by a talk from a recovering alcoholic and drug addict who went through a 12-step sobriety program.
The foundation owns and maintains the Fellowship House buildings in Niagara Falls and Somerset, in which recovering alcoholics and drug addicts are housed. Program director Roger A. Glasgow said it also owns 10 supported living apartments in Niagara Falls for recovering clients.
All the proceeds of the dance will go into the building fund, which was depleted this year by the purchase and renovation of a site at 1204 Niagara St., where two of the apartments are located.
Also, Glasgow said Fellowship House is expecting state approval shortly for a youth home and a women's program, to be operated in Lockport. Some of the proceeds from the dance will be earmarked for those projects.
Glasgow said the event is completely alcohol-free, and anyone who has been drinking before the dance will be escorted out.
Tickets are $6 in advance, $8 at the door. They are available by calling 284-6228, or visiting the Fellowship House halfway house, 431 Memorial Parkway.
