Dinner & Comedy Show

Laughter is good for the soul, and being able to laugh at oneself in recovery can help with healing. Helping clients find fun and humor in life can also aid in long-term recovery. Using humor, wisdom and personal insight, this one-hour presentation will offer an opportunity to laugh, cry, and gain insight into your own recovery and/or how you can help others around you.

5:00 PM | Doors Open
5:30 PM | Chances “R” Buffet Dinner
6:00 PM | Raffle & Dessert Dash/Auction
6:15 PM |  Don Marquard Spirit Award

Would you like to help us “pay it forward” by sponsoring a table of 8 ($320) for our friends new to recovery? The tickets you sponsor will be given to those who are currently in treatment or a half-way house locally, newer to recovery, or struggling to make ends meet and without your help, would not be able to attend. A gift of laughter and humor in recovery — priceless! Or, sponsor a table of 8 for you and a group of your friends! This evening promises to be great fun, food, and fellowship! Please contact our development coordinator, Sandy Yager, at (308) 385-5520 for sponsorship!

Mission Moments

This organization has a staff of people genuinely committed to helping their community! Every time I’ve called or visited, the people there have been kind, knowledgeable, and had a sincere desire to help in any way they could. In my experience here I learned more than I ever expected, and left feeling much better than I did when I came.

Sam M., Drug education class participant

He’s more focused, well mannered, and he has better self-esteem.

Parent of a Discovery Kids participant

My child now has an increased knowledge and awareness, especially after reading and going over the homework and other paper brought home from the program.

Parent of a Discovery Kids participant

Since Discovery Kids, she has shown a lot more responsibility and is trying to be more of a leader.

Parent of a Discovery Kids participant

The program is a different approach to teach a child about important issues. These issues can be really hard to talk about.

Parent of a Discovery Kids participant

My son has a better judgement when selecting foods and choosing foods lower in fat. The whole family has learned a lot too!

Parent of a CATCH Kids Club participant

I liked the program. You shared an important message to our kids, such as how to prevent problems with alcohol and drugs. Thank you!

Parent of a Discovery Kids participant

I think the program is wonderful and my child loves to go to CATCH Kids Club!

Parent of a CATCH Kids Club participant

My son runs, walks, and jumps on the trampoline more often. We also go for walks to the park more often as a family.

Parent of a CATCH Kids Club participant

The first time I attended Tree of Hope, I was living at Hope Harbor two years ago. Representatives of CNCAA had visited while I was in treatment at St. Francis ADTC. What wonderful gifts and literature I have purchased from the store. I plan to utilize the tobacco free program in the future. Thank you for supporting my recovery!

Michelle B., (9/20/14 - present)

Kids Power 2 helps me to be drug free and helps me with my mom’s problem.

Addison, Kids Power 2 participant
I feel passionate about spreading any type of help for families going through the devastation of addiction. More importantly, showing families that there is hope and solutions to live a beautiful, fun, and peace-filled life.
Mia W., Past CNCAA Board Member

Being a part of an organization that cares so much about the community is a place I want to be. Until we, as community members, come together as a force to educate those needing assistance, we struggle. CNCAA has mission to be that force.

Melissa A., Past CNCAA Board Member

CNCAA helped me in the very beginning of my recovery process with their wonderful lending library.

Jolene S., Past CNCAA Board Member

I always visited to get medallions, cards, or books. Staff was always friendly and helpful. The Council was very important to my daughter and that is what made me want to get involved. I had not realized all the kids programs offered, but that is the main reason I want to stay involved. Prevention is key. Thank you Connie and staff for all you do!

Jo G., Past CNCAA Board Member

Thank you! Kids Power gave us HOPE!

Crystal C., Parent of a Kids Power participant

Kids Power really helped my children cope with a life changing effect of alcoholism. It gave them the tools and confidence to get through.

Dan D., CNCAA Board Member

I like getting together to see friends at Kids Power 2 that I don’t usually get to see. I am concerned for my friends. Kids Power 2 is fun and so is getting to go to Timberlake.
