Living in the Light Gala


Thursday, April 4, 2019
UMass Lowell Inn & Conference Center

Full Dinner, Silent & Live Auctions

 Please join us for our 48th Anniversary Gala that will be the celebration of the year in Lowell. The 5th annual Gala will be an unforgettable night. On April 4, 2019, we will be honoring three very special leaders at the UMass Lowell Inn and Conference Center who have, in different ways, made a major impact on the drug and alcohol addiction issue in Lowell. Jody White is the CEO of Circle Health and Lowell General Hospital, and as the health care leader in our community, has made a major commitment to making Circle Health a leader in providing care to individuals with addiction and their families. Fire Chief Jeff Winward is known throughout the Merrimack Valley as one of the most innovative and dedicated public servants in dealing with the devastating opioid crisis. And finally, we are so pleased to honor John Chemaly with our Lifetime Achievement Award. As an owner of Trinity EMS, John has been active in developing strategies that have saved thousands of overdose victims since 1991, is a founding member of the city-wide COOP outreach team and has developed a data system that drives our Surge early warning overdose crisis system. He has been a generous philanthropist for many years and has helped fund dozens of agencies across the city.

Last year nearly 300 people attended the Living in the Light Gala to support critical services for individuals and their families struggling with the disease of addiction and mental health disorders. Reserve your tickets now -  CLICK HERE
