The Unity Committee of Alano is again sponsoring a Karaoke night at 401 S. 11th.
On March 8, 2014, at 9:30 PM (after the 8:00 Speakers Meeting) we will provide corned beef and cabbage and potatoes. St. Patrick’s day is in March – thus the theme for the food.
Karaoke has been a regular practice at the Alano for months – It is generally held on the second Saturday of the month.
We have experimented with a cover charge and with a goodwill basket. The goodwill basket has not produced much to offset the cost of the event. A cover charge has generated money but we fear has limited the participation. In order to serve our mission and to provide recovery community opportunities we are setting the cost for this event at $2.00 for members and $3.00 for non-members. The Karaoke events are not fundraisers. We hope only to minimize the out-of-pocket expense for Alano.
We continually see the best mix of sponsoring recovery community events with costs. We believe that socializing in a recovery community adds value to recovery.
