Nearly 300 people turned out to support the ongoing efforts of Malden Overcoming Addiction (MOA) at their second annual #TogetherWeCan Comedy Night to raise money to support recovery programs and initiatives for individuals battling the disease of addiction. Mayor Gary Christenson, State Representatives Paul Donato and Steve Ultrino and local elected officials joined MOA members as well as supporters in the community. The event was held at the Irish American and featured local comedians.
The evening also included auction items and raffles and raised $12,500 which will assist MOA to continue their mission to connect the community with addiction support and recovery services, stop the stigma of addiction, as well as eliminate overdose fatalities in Malden.
