We are so grateful to be able to hold our event again this year. It has been a true challenge to host events, raise money, and continue to run our organization. With the help and support of wonderful people like you, we will continue to "Fight Addiction and Fuel Recovery" in our community.
Because of COVID-19, overdoses in the state of Georgia are up 61.5% according to the CDC, and nationally as of May 2020, overdose, though not all fatal, is up 42% according to HIDTA. As you can see, we have taken several steps backward due to isolation and a devastated economy. Again, thank you for your much-needed support to allow the David Direction Foundation to help those who suffer with Substance Use Disorder.
The Cardinal's Nest began last year as a Ladies Brunch and Auction. We were able to sell 25 tables at Marietta Country Club to hostesses who were truly talented at decorating and showcasing not only their china but their creativity as well. In The Cardinal's Nest's inaugural year, we raised over $50,000, and we started the Charter Cardinal Club. It was a gorgeous event and everyone who attended left with a beautiful decoration, basket, shutter, or magnificent centerpiece for their holiday table. Since then, we decided to make it an annual event, the Saturday before Thanksgiving, to start the holiday season full of joy and generosity.
Because of COVID-19, our event has changed some this year. Instead of being held at the Marietta Country Club, our event will take place at THE ZONE in Marietta. We are so grateful to our food sponsor, Credit Union of GA, who is catering hors d'oeuvres, alongside a unique shopping experience that spreads out over three rooms and two separate buildings.
