Inspired by the growing sober-curious cultural trend, The Parkway Theater in Minneapolis and two non-profit partners threw a unique New Year’s Eve party for people who want to celebrate alcohol-free, featuring some of Minnesota’s top artists and entertainers. Resolution 2020: A Zero Proof New Year’s Eve, presented by Parkway partners Dissonance and the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation, included a number of activities intended to help individuals stay alcohol-free on New Years Eve.
The all-ages event reflects a larger “sober curious” trend, or movement as some call it, that is giving rise to more alcohol-free bars, brands, and events around the world, from Dublin, Ireland, to New York City and Seattle, Washington. Resolution 2020 included a variety of components a reveler would expect from a New Year’s party: hats and favors, a photo booth, a midnight countdown, and a bar full of non-alcoholic beverages.
The Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is a force of healing and hope for individuals, families and communities affected by addiction to alcohol and other drugs. As the nation’s leading non-profit provider organization of comprehensive inpatient and outpatient treatment for adults and youth, the Foundation has 17 locations nationwide and collaborates with an expansive network throughout health care. With a legacy that began in 1949 and includes the 1982 founding of the Betty Ford Center, the Foundation also encompasses a graduate school of addiction studies, a publishing division, an addiction research center, recovery advocacy and thought leadership, professional and medical education programs, school-based prevention resources, and a specialized program for children who grow up in families with addiction.
