How do I request a Scholarship?
Many of us have experienced financial hardship at some point in our sobriety, so we understand if you find yourself in such a predicament. Our goal is not to turn anyone away, because of a lack of funds. Each year many men attend Hot 'n Dry through the assistance of a scholarship. This stipend is awarded on a first-come first-serve basis as funds will allow.
SCHOLARSHIPS ARE FOR AA MEMBERS ONLY.
You must be a sober member of AA in order to be given a scholarship. To request a full or partial scholarship, you must apply online by clicking the Scholarship link on the left side navigation or by clicking here. Please keep in mind that only one scholarship per person per any three-year period is awarded. Thank you to all who have donated to the scholarship fund. Your generosity is greatly appreciated
How do I reserve a room at the Riviera Resort & Spa?
Hotel reservations are done online. Once you receive your confirmation email, it will include all of the necessary information that you will need to complete your hotel reservation. Please keep in mind that having a confirmed reservation for Hot ‘n Dry does not guarantee you a room at the hotel. So please make your reservation early.
Why is Hot 'n Dry a men's only conference?
Hot ‘n Dry, Inc., a California non-profit, private corporation, was founded and licensed by the State of California over 22 years ago as a gay sober men’s recovery weekend retreat. Since our very first conference, our weekend retreat has been devoted to the recovery of gay sober men in AA, providing a weekend atmosphere where gay sober men can bond, build friendships and develop sobriety tools and practice the 12 steps specific to the gay men’s experience in recovery.
