2021 Experience, Strength and Hope Awards' GRATITUDE DINNER
The Experience, Strength and Hope Award® is given in recognition of an individuals memoir that includes their honest journey from addiction to recovery, and their dedication and enthusiasm for creating awareness and reducing the stigma of addiction. GREAT NEWS regarding the Experience, Strength and Hope Awards event is still planned for December 15, 2021 at the Skirball Cultural Center. In light of the current situation, we have decided to scale down from the usual indoor attendance of 300 to a more intimate sit-down dinner for 50, al fresco. The Experience, Strength and Hope Award will be presented to Leigh Steinberg (last year's recipient, postponed due to Covid) and to Courtney Friel, this year's recipient.
Honoring> Super Agent Leigh Steinberg, the author of "The Agent: My 40-Year Career Making Deals and Changing the Game"
