Writers In Treatment Founder Leonard Buschel commented, "This award recognizes John Taylor who is helping to facilitate the transformation of people's lives by chronicling his journey through alcoholism and addiction to recovery. At a time when people suffer as much or more from the social stigma of addiction, John has come forward to champion recovery and dispel the dark clouds of superstition regarding this treatable and preventable illness. That certainly deserves our recognition, admiration and heartfelt gratitude."
The charity event is a celebration of the benefits of clean and sober living and the importance of humor in the recovery process. All proceeds benefit Writers In Treatment's Jewelle Sturm Memorial Scholarship Fund.
The Skirball Cultural Center is located at 2701 N. Sepulveda Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90049.
