Bronze Key Award Presented To Mary Jane & Bill Stanley
Benefit for The Alcohol & Addictions Resource Center

The Alcohol & Addictions Resource Center was honored to present the Bronze Key Award to Mary Jane and Bill Stanley on October 30, 2014 at the Hilton Garden Inn. The Bronze Key is a national recognition award granted by the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence to an individual or organization that has made an outstanding contribution to an NCADD affiliate. It is the highest local award presented by an NCADD affiliate.

Mary Jane and Bill Stanley have been involved with the Alcohol & Addictions Resource Center (AARC) for over 30 years. Their support and gifts of time and talent have helped the organization in ways that are beyond measure. Mary Jane has served on the AARC board along with many other community boards and shares her gifts of event planning, strategic planning, fund development and time. As a practicing attorney, Bill sees first-hand how the abuse of alcohol and other drugs can lead to devastating consequences. His practice of referring individuals to AARC for assessments helps determine which services will best help that person. Mary Jane and Bill have a life filled with faith, family, friends, service, generosity and kindness to others. It was truly a privilege for AARC to recognize and honor a lifetime of giving by Mary Jane and Bill
Stanley. Thank you!

The Honorable Michael Barnes was the Master of Ceremonies, and AARC Executive Director, Sharon Burden gave an overview of the agency.

Spike Abernethy, Event Co-Chair, presented the Sponsor recognition, while Event Co-Chair and AARC Board of Director President, Jack Gordon, presented the Bronze Key Award.
