LUDLOW — The Michael J. Dias Foundation announced the kickoff event for a capital campaign supporting the purchase and establishment of a women’s sober home. This event will be held on Wednesday, June 12 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at Twin Hills Country Club in Longmeadow.

Dr. Megan Miller from Baystate Health will chair the campaign. She is an assistant professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at UMass Chan Medical School – Baystate and a board-certified addiction medicine specialist.

Her contributions to women’s health were recently recognized with the Massachusetts Medical Society’s Women’s Health Award.

The capital campaign aims to raise $500,000 toward creating a safe and supportive environment for women in recovery. The public is invited to attend the kickoff event and learn more about the foundation’s initiatives, meet Miller, and contribute to a cause that is making a tangible difference in the lives of many.
