Proceeds from this benefit will go DIRECTLY to the scholarship fund at the Caron foundation. Visit www.caron.org to learn more.

At Salon NOVA, this cause is extremely close to our hearts as the devastating consequences of drug and alcohol addiction does not discriminate; it has impacted people from all walks of life.
