This year’s Sober and Proud Luao was a blast! Decked out in straw hats, leis and straw skirts, everyone showed their party spirit as we cooked up hot dogs and burgers and enjoyed the beautiful weather.
DJs Jim and Vern got the crowd going with good music (think good 80s music: “I Wanna Dance with Somebody”). Along with music and dancing, the crowd was entertained by a show of spoken word, comedy and drag.
The event brought Bonaventure House staff, residents and volunteers together with The Harbor, as well as friends of ABAM, for good times.
Erika, our fearless Volunteer Coordinator, worked on making this event a success. And with the help of volunteers, such as Bhuttu and Ross (with his dog), everything went smoothly.

Thanks to everyone who came out and those who made donations: Starbucks, Windy City Sweets and Einstein Bagels.
Hope to see you next year!
