The Magdalen House’s 2nd Annual Leave a Legacy Dinner: An Evening with Elizabeth Vargas, hosted over 420 guests, aiming to raise funds for their recovery community for alcoholic women and their families. The mission of The Magdalen House is to help women achieve sobriety and sustain recovery from alcoholism at no cost and based on 12-Step spiritual principles. The event raised a gross total of $325,095 and those funds will go directly toward the free programming and services that The Magdalen House provides to the community. An estimated 108,000 women are affected by alcoholism in the Dallas area. The agency is home to the only peer-implemented program of its kind in the local community and is a place that women can receive services to at any point in their recovery.

“We are so grateful to have had so many people come together to support a cause that affects so many families in our city. Our generous and loyal volunteers, family members and alumnae, allow us to help the thousands of women that visit our agency each year,” comments Lisa Kroencke, Executive Director, The Magdalen House. “We are deeply motivated and inspired to reach a much larger percentage of alcoholic women and their families and this event allowed us to do just that.”
