Feb. 24, 2023 – At a certain time in your life, you need to do something to help yourself. I did that. For me it was going to a detox, rehab and living in a sober house where I can learn the necessary living skills to be successful,” expressed Christopher Bland, Owner of Sober Chef Caterers.

Chris Bland shared the joy of the moment with his mother, Sherrell Velasquez. She told 22News of the pride she has in her son for the way he’s tackled his addiction recovery, “I’m very proud of my son, he’s come a very, very long way. I’ll always support him in anything he does, and I can see the change in him over the years.”

Presenting Chris with its admiration award is MiraVista’s way of saluting him for his progress, making all the hard choices and making them work for him.

“It means a lot to be able to work together, to have a close partnership with individuals like Chris, as a working diligent partner,” expressed MiraVista’s Chief of Creative Strategy and Development, Kimberly Lee.
