Calhoun, Ga. -- The Halstead/Metroflor Addiction Crisis Team (HMAC) is a nonprofit organization with a mission to raise funds for combating the addiction epidemic nationwide. The goal is to support organizations that can provide rehabilitation and education through “scholarships” to families who otherwise would not be able to afford it.

A fundraising event – “The Path to Resilience” - has been scheduled for Thursday, September 26, 6 – 9 p.m. at Harbor Lights in Norwalk, Conn., honoring Harlan Stone, president and group CEO of HMTX Industries, for his unwavering humanitarian spirit. The evening’s proceeds will support HMAC’s quest to provide addicts and their families with the treatment they need.

Save the Date for an evening of inspiration, music and hope, which will support HMAC’s goal of raising $500,000 over the next two years through a “Save an Addict. Save a Family” Go Fund Me page and other activities, which will be matched dollar for dollar by the Stone family for a total of $1 million. The tax-deductible donations will benefit a 501C3 partnership with “Faith in Four: Recovery, Prevention, Education and Treatment” to fund the scholarships at the following rehabilitation and education facilities: The Blanchard Institute, Charlotte, N.C.; Damascus Road Recovery, Covington, Ga.; Genesis Ministries, Kennesaw, Ga.; Hope House Ministries, Port Jefferson, N.Y.; and Thomas’ Hope, West Babylon, N.Y.

Single tickets are $125 each. The HMAC team also invites individuals and organizations to become a Corporate Sponsor, with sponsorship levels that range from Gold/Isocore ($10,000) and Silver/Lifeproof ($5,000) to Bronze/Allure ($2,500) and Supporter ($1,000).

“Please join us for this terrific opportunity to honor Harlan Stone, in recognition of his leadership, innovation accomplishments and service throughout the years," said Paul Eanes. "He has helped make the industry a better place for all of us to work in. Proceeds will help us with rehab scholarships for those in need and enable clinicians to find a cure for the disease of addiction.”
