Come join us for this gala event!

Every year NAGL reserves a number of tables at New York Intergroup's annual celebration of co-founder Bill W's sobriety. This gala, held at the Grand Ballroom of the New York Hilton, is a lot of fun. Get dressed up in your finest outfit for a three-speaker meeting, followed by dinner, and then a DJ dance party till 2 AM. We hope you can join us!

Also, it's for a good cause, NY intergroup's only fundraiser, so if you have ever looked up a meeting or called them or received literature or attended a meeting in an institution, you can appreciate the importance of sustaining their operating expenses.

Theme: "We Together: Strength & Unity"

Saturday, November 4, 2017

Time: 7pm - 2am

Location: New York Hilton Hotel, Grand Ballroom, 3rd Floor, 1335 Avenue of the Americas NY, NY 10019.

We are super excited to announce that we have found an amazing new space. Same day, Saturdays, but the time will change to 6:30pm. This is a straight up AA Meeting (as opposed to a Not a Glum Lot business or trip planning meeting.) It's a great place to reconnect with folks from the trips or just to get a solid meeting in. All are welcome, please help us to spread the word!
