19th Annual Friends of CLARE Tribute Dinner
To Be Held November 10, 2016 in Santa Monica

Honorees Announced For Gala Include
Actress-Author-Philanthropist Jamie Lee Curtis and Actor Kevin Zegers

The 19th Annual Friends of CLARE Tribute Dinner will be held on Thursday, November 10th, at Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel. Funds raised through the gala will support programs that provide effective and affordable alcoholism, substance abuse and behavioral health treatment. Honorees announced for the dinner include actress-author-philanthropist Jamie Lee Curtis and actor Kevin Zegers.

Emcee Pat O’Brien, host of KLEAN Radio Show, will open the awards ceremony with dinner, musical entertainment and live auction. The event is chaired by industry leaders Chuck Lorre, Stephen Moyer and Marshall Rawlings and proceeds raised during the evening will go towards funding CLARE’s treatment programs.

“The Tribute Dinner is not just a longstanding tradition thanking our supporters, but an opportunity to help our neighbors in the community and celebrate those who inspire and advocate on behalf of those who suffer in silence,” said Dr. Lisa Steele, CEO of CLARE. “We are so grateful to our esteemed honorees and generous friends who continue to provide CLARE with the support to allow us to bring life-saving treatment to those we serve.”

The Tribute Award honors outstanding individuals, who have supported CLARE’s goals in extraordinary and inspiring ways. This year’s honoree is Golden Globe Winner and best-selling author Jamie Lee Curtis. Her longstanding commitment to CLARE and candidness about her own battle with addiction and experience with recovery has raised significant awareness of the disease so many millions struggle with every day. Because of Curtis’ influential voice, there is a greater understanding of the need for treatment and compassion for those who make that brave choice to seek help.

Actor Kevin Zegers will be honored with the Spirit of CLARE Award. Zegers exemplifies CLARE’s vision of saving lives through recovery in a deeply personal and encouraging way. He tirelessly supports CLARE by spreading a message of hope and helping others find sobriety in the face of adversity.

Each year we recognize a CLARE alumni that embodies the success of our program through their journey of recovery. Will L.’s struggle with addiction and path to sobriety has become a beacon of hope for others.

Sponsorship opportunities and tickets are still available. Ticket price for the event is $250 or $2,500 for a table of ten.
