“I choose to support and volunteer at The Magdalen House because this house saved me,” says Game, Set, Match co-chair Amanda Dickstein. “I was completely uneducated on the disease of alcoholism and suffered in silence for so long I found myself on the brink of losing everything. At the Magdalen House, I was able to learn about this disease and found a community of women that would inevitably give me the tools to start a new life with meaning and purpose where I once felt nothing but shame and guilt. Thanks to the Magdalen House, I get to wake up every day and be proud of the wife, mother, daughter, friend and person that I am today. They gave me all of this at no cost, but I will continue to support and volunteer at this beautiful house in the hope that I can help provide this wonderful gift to another woman who still suffers.”
