Sunny Side Up
The Sunny Side Up Recovery Breakfast allows us to connect with and educate our community while raising funds needed to maintain our operations.
As the name suggests, the event is positive and upbeat, reflecting the “sunny side” that our community can generate in response to the challenge of addiction.
This year, for the third annual Sunny Side Up breakfast, we will be in Saint John and also in Charlotte County.
2023 Keynote Speaker: Mary Beth O'Connor
Mary Beth O’Connor’s story is one of triumph over addiction. Her struggle with substances began with alcohol at age 12. After 20 years of battling substances, Mary Beth found and sustained recovery.
She entered UC Berkeley Law and graduated in 2003. After working at a large firm in Silicon Valley, she was appointed a federal Administrative Law Judge, a position from which she retired in 2020.
Mary Beth shares her story in a riveting memoir from Junkie to Judge: One Woman’s Triumph Over Trauma and Addiction and in public speaking engagements. She leverages her experiences to reduce stigma and offer hope to those struggling.
