The Magdalen House, a nonprofit organization helping women achieve sobriety and sustain recovery from alcoholism at no cost and based on 12-Step spiritual principles, will host its second annual Leave a Legacy “Live, Loud and Free” concert at The Rustic on November 3, 2022. Guests will be treated to entertainment by Rascal Flatts Front man, Gary LeVox, dinner, dancing, and amazing auction items — all while celebrating alcoholic women’s empowerment and raising awareness and much-needed funds to help D/FW women achieve alcoholism recovery.

According to a recent study, women increased their drinking by 41% before the pandemic. Today, there are over 250,000 alcoholic women in D/FW alone. Less than 1 in 15 alcoholic women (only 6.9%) will seek formal help. Because women face more stigmatization, shame, family responsibilities, and socioeconomic barriers than men, they frequently have co-occurring disorders and are less likely to seek treatment. If you’re an alcoholic who can’t stop drinking or a concerned loved one of an alcoholic, the first step in recovery is education and access to resources. In North Texas, The Magdalen House provides residential recovery, detox, group meetings, structured programs, family support groups, and tools designed to help grow and sustain recovery. Proceeds from fundraising events like Leave a Legacy help ensure that The Magdalen House can provide no cost services to alcoholic women. 

This year’s event is co-chaired by Alyson Griffith, Kristy Hoglund Robinson and Kathleen Powell.
