Healing Springs Recovery Center Recipient of Fundraiser for Fentanyl and Overdose Awareness
SARATOGA SPRINGS – On Tuesday, July 14, 2020, Eddie F’s Eatery held their first Annual Fundraiser called “For the Love of Eddie, and Meggie, Too!”
The day symbolizes the one year passing of the Fazzone family, owners of Eddie F’s, son Eddie and one of their team members Meg. Both were lost to a fentanyl overdose. The Fazzone family chose to celebrate their lives by giving back to the
community they love and raise awareness of the dangers of fentanyl on the streets and inspire courage to those battling addiction. They donated 30 percent of the take for the day and their staff donated their time and all tips for the day. The event raised over $11,000, which was donated to Healing Springs Recovery Community and Outreach Center, a program of The Prevention Council of Saratoga County.
Healing Springs Recovery Center is located at The Mill at 125 High Rock Avenue in Saratoga Springs. and every month helps several hundred local individuals and families with loved ones struggling with addiction.
“Since March, our services are online and held outside, with referrals and connections being made daily…and all our programs are free,” said Lillian McCarthy, center director.
