Caron Drug & Alcohol Treatment Centers is one of the oldest, largest single-site treatment facilities in the country, so we were absolutely humbled to be invited to their annual gala at Cipriani Wednesday!
The event focused on raising money for scholarships to Caron, while also honoring several musicians for their contributions to the cause.
"A lot of musicians are alcoholics and addicts," said Dr. John, during a recognition speech.
Patti LaBelle also spoke at the ceremony, being honored with the Caron Creative Artist’s Award for her philanthropic spirit.
Here's our goodie bag to you - Dr. John performing "Mess Around" at the end of the ceremony.
