Join us on Saturday, June 10th at the Marriott Hotel in Palm Beach Gardens for our annual Way of Life Conference. Here our AA, Al-Anon and ACA Fellowships will come together for an amazing day of hope, healing and inspiration.
The Way of Life Conference not only allows for individuals to dive deeper into their primary Program but also sample the experience, strength and hope available in all three Programs. The Conference will kick-off at 8am with AA, Al-Anon, ACA and Mind/Body/Spirit (MBS) Sessions happening throughout the day with a BBQ Lunch being served mid-day on the Marriott pool deck.
12:30p - 1:30p will be the WoL Keynote Discussion Panel, featuring speakers from all three programs. At 4:30pm, you can relax at the Happy, Joyous and Free "Cocktail Hour" featuring the tropical sounds of steel drums. We will wrap up the day with a beautiful dinner banquet starting at 6:30pm immediately followed by our "Recovery Comedian" Kurtis Matthews!
In addition to the inspiring speakers, discussion panel, workshops, music and food, you will be filled with the Fellowship and love that is the foundation of this beautiful “WAY OF LIFE.”

In 1984, Kurtis Matthews began his stand-up career at the Improv in Hollywood. That same year, he also embarked upon his own journey of recovery from alcoholism and drug abuse after an automobile accident resulted in his second DUI and jail time. Touring alongside such renowned comedy veterans as Bill Hicks and Sam Kinison, he learned the joys of making people laugh as well as the challenges of staying clean and sober while doing so.
After fourteen years of touring nationally and appearing on A & E’s “Evening at the Improv,” Kurtis took a five-year break to work in the software industry. Stand-up had never left his heart, though, and in 1999, he started the San Francisco Comedy College (SFCC), the nation’s largest stand-up school. The SFCC has trained over 7,000 people to be funny, attracting scouts from HBO and the Late Show with David Letterman.
Most recently Kurtis starred in the hit BBC 1 Reality Show, "Find Me the Funny" as well as Season 2 of the Popular TV Show, "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew".
Using his struggles with alcohol, drugs and infidelity to enrich his material, Kurtis makes audiences laugh while inspiring them to be the best people they can be.
