(Hicksville, NY) Carl Radke, a mental health and sobriety advocate known from Bravo’s Summer House, will be a featured speaker at CN Guidance’s Basket of Hope charity raffle event on March 20th at the Mansion at Oyster Bay.

Appearing on behalf of Loverboy’s new line of non-alcoholic beverages, Radke – who is more than three years sober – will be speaking about his recovery and the tragic loss of his brother to substance use.

“My goal is to offer help through my experiences, encouraging open dialogue about sobriety and mental health, and to be an inspiration for personal growth and transformation,” explained Radke.
