You may or may not have heard about Wherehab, unless you’re in the recovery community, in which case there’s a good chance you probably have. On April 22nd, Wherehab organized and hosted an event at Harold’s Coffee Lounge called “Sober Paint Party”, modeled after the Hindu spring festival celebrated in India and Nepal. This event was just one of many Wherehab produces in order to raise money to help a group of people many organizations are sadly closing their doors to and giving up on – homeless addicts. Inspired by the message Wherehab drives, over 200 people showed up to dance, drink coffee, and throw Holi paint at each other. (Holi paint is a powder paint made from flowers that are used in the Hindu spring festival celebrated in India and Nepal, also known as the “festival of colors” or the “festival of love”.) 400lbs of Holi paint filled the back yard and air of Harold’s – so much that people would pull off the road to see what was going on. “Sober Paint Party”, among other unique events that Wherehab have hosted, is a real testament to the fact that people can still have a fun time and socialize, without the use of drugs or alcohol.
