The Daniel Moreno Recovery Award was introduced in 2007 by Susan Moreno, after her son Daniel died by suicide while receiving treatment for schizophrenia. The Recovery Award recognizes local individuals that have inspired hope and who signify the determination and passion it takes to advocate, educate and support those living with mental illness as well as an individual that personally represents the path of recovery. The Daniel Moreno Award Dinner and Silent Auction takes place on Friday, October 4 at 6:30pm at Skyline Country Club. Tickets are $45/advance and $55 after September 24. Proceeds will benefit the Tucson office of miKID.
