One of the many Central Texas organizations that I have the pleasure of working with is AYADD Outreach here in Killeen.

The mission of AYADD Outreach Center is to raise the awareness of Adolescents and Young Adults with alcohol addiction, focusing primarily on those who drink and drive.

This nonprofit organization helps young people through the struggles they face and also helps adults dealing with substance abuse, domestic violence and other problems.

AYADD Outreach will be hosting its annual 2019 Gala this Saturday night (May 4th) at the Courtyard By Marriott Hotel in Killeen with the doors opening at 5:30 pm.

This formal event features dinner and live Gospel music performances from local acts such as Dana Holcomb and In Him We Move Mime Ministry and national acts like Wes Morgan and Kathy Taylor.

Tickets are $60 and dinner is included in your ticket price.

Tickets are on sale now at AYADD Outreach Center located at 1109 Dogwood Blvd. in Killeen or at Lil Touch Of Class Beauty Salon on 610 South Gray Street in Killeen. All proceeds are used to support AYADD Outreach to continue to raise awareness of underage drinking and driving.
