Daniel Driscoll Writes-
I‘m writing you in regards to our upcoming event called “New Year’s Eve with Sober Connections” at the Blackburn Performing Arts Center at 1 Washington St in Gloucester MA. (On the Corner of Washington & Main about the restaurant Guiseppe’s)
This Event is the vision of SoberConnections.net being hosted at the Blackburn Performing Arts Center. We at Sober Connections are striving to create activities for the sober communities here on the North shore, and hope to expand across the state. Our Social Website, www.SoberConnections.net has started picking up people from all across the country! Our goal with these events is to offer the sober community a sense of awareness that there are fun things to do without the use and abuse of alcohol and/or drugs. Our website provides a forum for people to find or share these events, whether it be simply a group of people heading to the movies, or a larger event like we are pulling together for this venue.
We are scheduled to open the doors around 7 PM to offer the live music, DJ, and Dancing from 7:30 -12:30 PM. Below is an excerpt of what we are sending people:
“Sober Connections New Years Eve Party
Come Join us for a night of Sober Festivities as we celebrate our 1 year anniversary and countdown the end of the year and usher in the New Year at the Blackburn Performing Arts Center in Gloucester, soon to be our new home for Sober Connections! This is a Family Friendly Event.
All are welcome! The only requirement is a desire to party without the use of alcohol!

DJ DK will be rocking out the tunes with a a few songs hand picked from our younger crowd, and as always, VJ Mike will be making sure that your visual cortex’s are assaulted properly watching our 100" large video screen.
Daniel D is again gathering Gift Certificates from the local merchants and other prizes for our end of night giveaways.. looks to be a Great Night!!
We do encourage you to think about our "Sponsor a ticket" program. This was designed so that people that couldn’t pay for a ticket could get in with the donation of others. This has been very popular, and these tickets will be held at the door for those wanting to come but their budget is a bit tight. We all have been thru it in early sobriety, and have been to many wonderful events due to the generosity of others in sobriety.
We are also having a musical instrument Drive to help the Beverly School for the Deaf. They are looking for used musical instruments for the new music program they are bringing to these children, so if you have anything from a kazoo to larger instruments, please bring them to donate. They will be going to a good cause!”
Tickets can be purchased at the door, but we are hoping to sell out, so if you’re looking to come, Advanced Tickets are available thru Ticket River at:
And if you want to promote our event to your friends, we are also located on Boston.com Here:
We hope to see you there!
