St. John’s is excited to announce that Nic Sheff will be our speaker for our 5th Annual Restoring Hope Gala on Nov. 2, 2019 at the Radisson Hotel and Conference Center. Nic Sheff’s heartbreaking and inspiring struggle with substance abuse disorder is the story of Beautiful Boy, a major motion picture starring Timothée Chalamet as Nic and Steve Carell as his father, David. The film is based on Nic’s New York Times bestselling memoir, Tweak: Growing Up on Methamphetamines. Sharing an unglamorized, authentic and heart-touching story of substance abuse and recovery that is deeply rooted in mental illness, Nic has been recognized as “a life-changing speaker.” Stay tuned for more information as ticket sales open in late April.
