Eileen Donoghue once again hosted the annual roast, this time as city manager instead of state senator, alongside her successor former Mayor Ed Kennedy. The event Thursday evening was full of jokes, jokes about jokes and occasional heartfelt sentiments. It was attended by roughly 350 people and was expected to raise about $10,000 for Lowell Community Health Center Teen BLOCK, though the final amount was not yet calculated as of Thursday night.”

And there’s a workforce shortage, not enough people have access to treatment, the funding model needs to change, and the system is not designed to proactively help people who are struggling.”
