30 Aug 2019 Donation to Sobriety Foundation
On August 13, 2019, Haynie & Company brought together the greater Salt Lake community to support Sobriety Foundation. Our annual golf fundraiser was a fun way to connect with clients and other businesses, but it was so much more. All proceeds from the event went directly to sober living sponsorships at Sobriety Foundation.
The outpouring of support from our event sponsors and participants was amazing. We are grateful to everyone who made this event a true success. Our goal was to raise $10,000. We exceeded this goal and presented a check for $15,000 to Sobriety Foundation this week.
Amy Sorensen, Executive Director at Sobriety Foundation, was there the day of the golf fundraiser to express her gratitude. Amy explained that unfortunately, insurance only covers 30 to 45 days of drug and alcohol treatment. To break the cycle of addiction people need more time. That is where Sobriety Foundation comes in. They provide an additional 90 days of sober living to financially disadvantaged adults in Utah. The safe, sober living environments they provide are located throughout typical neighborhoods. Without these homes, many people would be homeless or returning to toxic environments.
Sobriety Foundation helps break the cycle of relapse, by giving 90 days to reset, escape toxic environments, get jobs, therapy and support. The entire donation from the Haynie & Company golf fundraiser will go directly to sober living sponsorships.
Generosity is a core value at Haynie & Company. Our vision is to make our community a better place to work, live and raise the next generation. When you partner with us, you are joining a movement to make a difference.
