“Joy’s House,” a sober house for women located in North Miami Florida, will be hosting a charity raffle to raise money for its foundation and recovery efforts. The raffle will be highlighted by one very sought after piece of art valued at $25,000.00 from Grammy award winning artist, Jim Warren. Warren donated the piece, called “Survior” (the painting featured in the post), to benefit Joy’s House. Tickets for the raffle are on sale now for only $20.00 a piece. However, tickets are limited to 1,200 spots, so we suggest not waiting long if you’re interested.
Joy’s House was established by Charlie G., a recovering alcoholic and editor of the recovery magazine, “It’s All In The Journey.” Charlie G. started consuming heavily to cope with the unfortunate loss of his daughter but has since made a recovery through the 12 Step Fellowships (AA & NA) and launched “It’s All In The Journey” magazine and Joy’s House in memory of his daughter, Joy.
At the official Joy’s House website, the sober house is explained in the following way: “Our house is based on 12-step principles & Joy’s House is located near 5 different 12 step meeting rooms. Attending a 12 step meeting daily is required in the first 3 months (90 meetings in 90 days).” For anyone interested in purchasing raffle tickets for the event, please check out the following link: http://www.joyshouse.eventbrite.com/.
