The Baltimore Station announced Wednesday that its 24th annual Homerun for Recovery raised more than $117,000 for its residential recovery program for homeless veterans and others who are battling drug and alcohol addiction. On April 14, hundreds gathered at PBR Baltimore at Power Plant Live to show their support for the organization.
“Our community continues to show its generosity for us each year,” said John Friedel, executive director of The Baltimore Station. “$117,000 in donations is the most this event has ever raised and the funds will be instrumental in support of our mission to turn lives around.”
Participants enjoyed gourmet food and drinks, raffles, silent and live auctions, music, and mechanical bull riding. This is the first year that The Baltimore Station hosted its Homerun for Recovery fundraiser at PBR Baltimore. The presenting sponsor of the event was Fortego LLC.
The Baltimore Station is a therapeutic residential treatment program that helps homeless men–primarily veterans bound by drug and alcohol addiction to break the cycle and become self-sufficient members of society. The only long-term residential program in the area, we provide up to 24 months of clinical care and life skills development to encourage a smoother transition to the real world.
