On Thursday, October 11th, The Magdalen House is excited and honored to host Elizabeth Vargas at our Leave a Legacy: An Evening with Elizabeth Vargas dinner at Dallas Auction Gallery in the heart of the Design District.
As an award-winning anchor and correspondent, Vargas has traveled the world covering breaking news stories, reporting in-depth investigations and conducting newsmaker interviews. Currently the co-anchor of ABC’s 20/20 with David Muir, Vargas was credited by The New York Times for reinvigorating the newsmagazine format with her “intellectually brave” reporting.
In September 2016, Vargas’s memoir Between Breaths: A Memoir of Panic and Addiction, was released by Grand Central Publishing. The book details her struggles with anxiety and alcohol, and tells a powerful story of healing and coping. A special episode of 20/20 aired in conjunction with the book’s release, in which Vargas and Diane Sawyer discussed Vargas’ experiences, reported on the link between anxiety and alcohol abuse, and interviewed both addiction experts and people recovering from addiction.
Vargas’s commitment to advocating for women, as well as her experience with and understanding of alcoholism, qualifies her to empower countless Dallas women. Her message is consistent with the mission of The Magdalen House and spreads hope to alcoholic women and their families.
