Telling Oxford: An Evening of Stories and Songs
The third-annual Telling Oxford: An Evening of Stories and Songs is scheduled for Tuesday, October 16, 2018, and we want you to be involved.
Dear friends of recovery,
Alcohol and substance use continue to negatively impact college students. In fact, 20% of college students meet the criteria for substance use disorder. This represents the highest percentage of any age group.
The role of the University of Mississippi Collegiate Recovery Community is to provide a nurturing, affirming environment in which students in recovery from substance use disorder can pursue academic goals, receive social support, and engage in opportunities in the Lafayette-Oxford-University community.
Our upcoming event will provide encouragement and support to students in recovery at Ole Miss, and others seeking support. The third-annual Telling Oxford: An Evening of Stories and Songs is scheduled for Tuesday, October 16, 2018, and we want you to be involved. There are two ways you can help:
- Attend the event! Tickets may be purchased at the door for $25 each or $10 with a student I.D.
- Be an event sponsor. Your gift will include tickets – if you cannot attend, your tickets will allow small groups from our area treatment centers to attend.
We are excited to continue our tradition of sharing recovery stories. This year singer/songwriter Adrian Dickey, a long-time favorite of the Oxford music scene, will perform, and join students and members of our local recovery community in sharing stories of healing and hope. I hope you will join our efforts to support students in recovery by considering a sponsorship or attending this year’s event.
