And The Winner Is...
The Davis Direction Foundation is excited to bring our VIRTUAL GALA to you this year. It’s our 6th annual GALA on the 2nd Sunday evening of August and as they say in Show Business…. “THE SHOW MUST GO ON!” The show will be amazing, informative and educational as you learn about THE ZONE and all that our Cobb County Recovery Support Center has to offer. Although this year will be quite different than years past, you will still be entertained and have opportunities for live auction bidding, silent auction bidding and making donations to help us do what we do…”FIGHT ADDICTION & FUEL RECOVERY!” So, get your ticket now – 1 ticket per household, and then on Sunday evening, August 9th from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. join us as we go throughout the nation spreading our story!
We are challenging ourselves this year to sell a ticket in every state in the United States! Many states are already claimed by our supporters, but we would love to have as many as possible join us for our “AND THE WINNER IS…” Charity Gala and Auction. Please check back with us at www.davisdirection.org for follow up details of our event and how you can help us make a difference! Thank you for your support and please spread the word so that we can all be WINNERS as we support people with the disease of Substance Use Disorder. Building a Community of Recovery would not be possible without the generous contributions from people like you.
As we celebrate the 6th year of this Gala event, it warms our hearts to know that over 3,000 visits occur every month at The Zone. We provide resources and support to help people seek, maintain, or enjoy long term recovery free from substance use disorder. We know that we have work to do because Cobb County still ranks at the top of the list for overdose deaths. Please continue to walk beside us on this journey.
Hopefully, by the end of the night, you will better understand the disease of addiction and why and how it continues to take our children. We would ask that you open your hearts, your minds, and your wallets this evening so that we can continue to fight addiction and fuel recovery in our community.
The next life saved could be someone that matters to you.

The Cardinal's Nest
The Davis Direction Foundation is a 501c3 nonprofit in Marietta, GA whose mission is to “Fight Addiction and Fuel Recovery.” The Foundation was formed in March of 2014 after the fatal overdose death of Davis Owen, the 20-year-old son of Michael and Missy Owen. Cobb and Fulton counties lead the state in overdose deaths and have for the last five years. “The Cardinal’s Nest” event was the idea of Mrs. Cheryl Hungerford as an effort to raise money to support THE ZONE, Cobb County’s first and only Recovery Support Organization, helping people in recovery, stay in recovery.
All funds raised will go directly to the Davis Direction Foundation to support the operations of THE ZONE, Cobb County’s first and only Recovery Support Organization. The Zone is located at 32 N. Fairground St. NE in Marietta and is open 365 days a year from 9:00 am until 10:00 pm. It serves as a FREE resource to provide resources and fellowship to people in recovery. On average, THE ZONE currently has 3,500 visits on a monthly basis. It is lovingly referred to as “the house that COBB built.” The mission of THE ZONE is to help people in recovery stay in recovery by providing the resources and support that is necessary. It is an evidencebased model run by people in recovery known as Peer Support Specialists
The Cardinal’s Nest Luncheon will take place at Marietta Country Club on Saturday, November 21st from 10:30 am – 1:00 pm.
