AUGUST BIGVISION Newsletter

As summer ends, we reflect on the many amazing events that took place with our BIGVISION family this past month.

Thanks to Laurie Kimmelstiel, we hosted a wonderful Night of Knitting with instructor Petra Marcelle from String. Attendees learned how to knit and our first project was hand warmers for this winter. We will continue hosting knitting classes in the future months and look forward to advancing our knitting skills.

On August 8th, we sailed around Manhattan, thanks to Deborah Mellen, on "The Impossible Dream," a 60’ fully accessible catamaran. It was a magical night with spectacular views of the city and sunset over the Manhattan skyline. Serenity prevailed and the camaraderie was felt by all.

In September, we will be hosting a viewing party of an online presentation at the White House in celebration of National Alcohol and Drug Recovery Month. The goal is to educate and inspire youth in recovery as well as those about to embark on that journey. Christina Huffington will serve as the moderator and after the presentation, we are looking forward to continuing the discussion over dinner.

BIGVISION was recently featured in The Center for Motivation and Change’ s September Newsletter as the Resource Spotlight. You can read the BIGVISION piece here http://motivationandchange.com/great-idea-bigvision-nyc-offers-sober-activites-for-young-adults/ .

We are excited about the launch of our new website in the next few weeks! Be on the lookout for an email with details and please visit www.bigvision.nyc when we are up and running. We are also proud to have 82 members of our BIGVISION Community page on Facebook and we are quickly gaining momentum. We will be posting all future events on our page so please join at www.facebook.com/groups/bigvisionnyccommunity/ .

We would also like to welcome Christine Jeberg to the BIGVISION team. She will be your contact for any requests and suggestions going forward so please feel free to email her at Christine@bigvisionnyc.com.

We thank you for your continued support for BIGVISION. Your help is already making a difference in those striving to live happy, healthy and substance-free lives.

Best,
Eve Goldberg and the BIGVISION Family
