We want to extend a very heartfelt thank you to everyone who attended our 34th Anniversary Birthday Bash! Maggie’s Women’s Group helped us celebrate 34 years of The Magdalen House through what turned out to be a truly rockin’ event.
In case you missed it, the night began with heartfelt remarks from the Maggie’s community and awards celebrating the hard-working members of our women’s group and staff. This was followed by a picnic dinner expertly prepared and generously provided by Chef Michael McCoy. The room was filled with laughter and joy and as the guests finished their meals, it was clear the party was just beginning.
The Vinyl Countdown gave our birthday event a spark with arena rock tunes, or as they proclaimed, “Dad Rock”. The dance floor soon filled with one-hundred women and their loved ones. The joy was contagious. Even wallflowers eventually gave in and triumphantly joined the group with reckless abandon. The dancing was broken up only to allow for Maggie’s Women’s Group to give out door prizes.
As evening set in, we all headed outside the venue and lit sparklers in honor of the women we have lost throughout the year. Their spirit will live on forever within our community.
Our anniversary month has been further filled with gratitude as we accomplished a historic feat on June 29th with 20 women in our Social Detox program at once! We are thrilled to accomplish 34 years of The Magdalen House with our new Gaston home filled at max capacity.
As we blow out the candles on our 34th birthday month we’d like to share our birthday wishes for the remainder of the year:
a. Continue to help women achieve sobriety and sustain recovery from alcoholism at no cost and based on 12-Step spiritual principles.
b. Share the beauty of our recovery community near and far.
c. Spend time with loved ones and give to our community through volunteering.
We can’t wait to celebrate our 35th Anniversary next year!
