It's time to break out your Hawaiian shirts and grass skirts. Connect the Pieces kicks off its Recovery Revolution Beach Party Friday, June 27, with the Third Annual Gala and Auction.

Connect the Pieces is a local organization that aims to prevent prescription drug abuse in our community.

This year's gala focuses on how nutrition can help those suffering with addiction through recovery. The gala will feature an Iron Chef-style cook-off between three restaurants: Mai Thai, The Dish and Kind Cuisine Cafe. Two new programs will be debuted at the event, including the Recovery Wellness Program and The Amazing Adventures of Pharmacist Phil safety program for students in kindergarten through third grade. All proceeds benefit Connect the Pieces' prevention and recovery programs.
