The Annual Celebration is Day One’s major fundraising event that builds support for Day One programs. Each year we bring a keynote speaker to Maine to share his/her connection to the issue of substance abuse and mental health and honor local leaders for their leadership on the issue.
Planning for next year’s 44th Annual Celebration is already underway! Spoiler alert to New England Patriots nation: Keynote Speaker is the former defensive lineman who spent his entire professional career with the New England Patriots, Jerod Mayo!
