19th Annual Circle of Hope Award Dinner

Thursday, April 16, 2020

The Fairbanks Circle of Hope Dinner is held each spring to raise awareness in our community about alcohol and drug addiction. The event is also a celebration of hope featuring faces and voices of those in recovery. The Richard M. Fairbanks Circle of Hope Award is presented to an individual or organization making outstanding contributions to the field of addiction. Proceeds from the Fairbanks Circle of Hope Dinner support the Fairbanks Patient Assistance Fund for those in recovery who are uninsured or under-insured.
