Twelfth Step Family Dinners
10th Annual Dinner
with Guest Speaker Darryl Strawberry
Darryl Strawberry is a person in long term recovery, an ordained Christian minister and author. Born in Los Angeles, California in 1962, Darryl had a rough start to life growing up in South Central with an abusive, alcoholic father. He was thrown into the spotlight at a young age when he signed with the New York Mets in 1980 directly out of high school. During his 17-year career in Major League Baseball, Strawberry played for the New York Mets, Los Angeles Dodgers, San Francisco Giants and New York Yankees. He’s an eight-time All-Star, a four-time World Series Champion and a National League Rookie of the Year. While baseball is no longer the primary focus of Darryl’s life, his years on the diamond helped form who he is today.
