Eau Claire (WQOW) - On a night where alcohol is almost everywhere, the State Theatre in Eau Claire is providing a space for people to celebrate the new year sober.

Organizer Breana Stanley said the event on Tuesday night is geared toward people who do not drink or those struggling with alcohol addiction.

Stanley said she and Joe Luginbill, who runs the State Theatre, decided not to serve alcohol at events so they will be open to people of all ages.

"Having this option for people who are trying to live a sober life and also for people who may not be 21 but do want to celebrate," Stanley said. "This gives a safe place that they can come and they can have as much fun as anybody else without having to go to a bar or be pressured into drinking alcohol."

The event features mocktails, live performances and karaoke. It serves as a fundraiser for the LGBTQ Community Center.

Tickets are still available. The doors open at 8:30 p.m.
