Celebration of Hope Luncheon Benefiting Charlie's Place

Several hundred people gathered for lunch at the Solomon P. Ortiz Center Wednesday to help raise money for a worthy organization in this community.

It was the fourth annual Celebration of Hope Luncheon benefiting Charlie's Place, a local drug rehab and recovery center that has been in operation since 1965.

The facility helps about 2,000 people every year, and it is funded through events like the one on Wednesday. Kiii News Anchor Joe Gazin was honored to be the emcee at the event.

Charlie's Place helps people over the age of 18, and never turns anyone away just because they can't pay. If you need their help, you can call them at 361-886-5350.
