19th Annual Drug-Free Kids Campaign Awards Dinner

Thank you for your support of CADCA’s 2017 Drug-Free Kids Campaign Awards Dinner!

On Thursday, October 19, 2017, at the Gaylord National Hotel’s Riverview Ballroom, hundreds gathered to reflect on the successes and milestones of substance abuse prevention work and took the time to thank those individuals and organizations who devote their time and energy to keeping communities healthy, safe and drug-free.

Surrounded by stunning views of the Potomac River in the greater Washington, D.C. area, attendees had the opportunity to network and bid on Silent Auction items – all proceeds go directly to funding youth prevention training and resources across the country.

Our Honorees, The Team at Alkermes, the 2017 Humanitarian of the Year and The Team at BAV, our Champion for Drug-Free Kids shared remarks at the event regarding the issues of safe, healthy, and drug-free communities.

Also, our Youth Honorees, Andrea Marquez representing the Texans Standing Tall Youth Leadership Council, El Paso, Texas and Jarlath Riley representing the Makin’ It Happen Coalition, Manchester, New Hampshire shared the value of CADCA’s National Leadership Training Institute and the impact it has had on their lives.

Finally, our silent auction was an overall success! Attendees and those unable able to attend bid and won a selection of vacation packages, hotel stays, artwork, sporting tickets and memorabilia, photography services and other great items.

We have three items remaining:

St. Augustine Florida Stay

Complimentary week stay at Crescent Cove an Ocean front vacation rental house. A three-story beachfront home with a view of the Intracoastal and enough room to sleep 10 people.

Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center

Complimentary two-night stay includes daily breakfast for two in the Riverwalk Cantina restaurant

Rosen Shingle Creek Golf Resort
