Page 12 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, May 17, 2024 MOA's 6th Annual Comedy Night Fundraiser Special to The Advocate O n Thursday, May 9th, Malden Overcoming Addiction held their 6th annual Comedy Night Fundraiser @ the Irish American Club in Malden to a packed house. A night that so many MOA supporters look forward to each year. This night highlights the successes of past Dom Disario Scholarship recipients. This year's speakers Christian, Lisa & PJ brought laughter, pride and applause, but most importantly, hope! The Dom Disario Scholarship which is funded in part by this fundraiser helped all 3 keynote speakers achieve their goal of sustained recovery. We are grateful to Mayor Christensen for his continued support and sharing in the successes that Malden has realized with outreach programs and combating the stigmas associated with substance use disorder. Thank you to Senator Jason Lewis, State Representatives Steve Ultrino and Paul Donato, City Council President Paul Winslow and Hank Keezer and the Bayrd Foundation for their continued support. Dave Russo & Friends rounded out the night with laughter for all! MOA could not put on this annual event without the generous support of all of our sponsors, supporters and volunteers who come out and join us in celebrating those that have achieved sustained recovery. The night raised over 11K for future recipients of the Dom Disario scholarships. Malden is special for so many reasons, but the love and support shown on this night in particular each year gives hope to those that are still in the shadows seeking recovery. Without missing a beat, MOA is already planning their next event.
