Toast to Hudson on Feb. 3 was a huge success, attracting more than 300 residents to the high-profile event and raising more than $100,000 for two of Hudson's most vital non-profit organizations: Hudson Community Foundation and Hudson Community First. Both organizations, along with presenting sponsor Akron Children's Hospital, are leading the fight against heroin and opiate addiction in our community.

Hudson Community Foundation is an endowment-building organization dedicated preserving and enhancing the community for future generations.

Hudson Community First promotes positive youth development and seeks to unite individuals, organizations and our schools in an effort to nurture competent, caring and responsible youth.

Organizers of the event thank everyone who participated in the event, and who are involved in the fight against addiction.
