Social Model Recovery Systems celebrated our 25th Anniversary!

Social Model Recovery Systems celebrated our 25th Anniversary and first annual “Pursuit of Wellness Gala” on November 5, 2011. Over 300 friends demonstrated their commitment to our efforts in attaining justice, equality and wellness for those we serve by contributing to and attending this event. Everyone had a great time, enjoyed dinner, bid on auction items, and relished in the live musical performances. Special recognition was given to SMRS founders, Chris Spencer, and the late Charles “Bud” Hayes, who laid the foundation upon which our organization has flourished. A heartfelt thank you goes to all those who attended and/or contributed to our special evening. Your support will assist us in providing much-needed services in carrying forth our mission to individuals and communities struggling with mental health and/or substance abuse issues.  Special awards were presented to Dr. James Barger, Board President, Betty Sandford, 25 year Board member and former Board President, and Chris Spencer, co-founder.
