Message from
the Planning Team

Welcome to Sobriety On the Sand 2018! We are excited to announce this NEW recovery event for gay men from ALL programs to celebrate themselves, each other and their community while raising money to benefit recovery-related organizations around San Diego. The event will be held September 21-23, 2018 at the picturesque Marina Village on Mission Bay & Mission Beach. We invite you to join us and be one of the first to experience this spectacular annual event.

We will bring together 200+ gay men from California and around the United States to be part of a ground-breaking weekend that promises fun-filled activities, engaging workshops, inspiring keynote speakers, amazing food and a weekend full of fellowship and wonderful memories.  

Our vision is a weekend event that shows recovery can be fun by offering programming, activities and entertainment for gay men of all ages and backgrounds. We also want this event to give back to the recovery community that saved our lives. Proceeds from this event will go to create a fund to be managed by the San Diego Human Dignity Foundation. This fund will benefit recovery-related nonprofit organizations by providing grant opportunities. So join us and help make our vision a reality.

We look forward to seeing you in September 2018 and at all the fundraising events we have planned throughout the year.
