Simply Grace is pleased to announce that fashion stylist Laurie Graham will emcee 4th annual Grace the Runway fundraising event. Laurie says, ” Your attendance would mean the world to me, as I am passionate about the mission and goals of this organization! I have been working closely with the Board of Directors for Simply Grace in recent weeks and am blown away by the staggering statistics of people in Dallas who are suffering from alcohol and drug addiction issues. In Dallas alone there are 440,000 men & women with substance abuse problems. Betty Ford estimates the relapse rate after rehab is up to 80% likely without the continued treatment program of monitored support. Whereas, a sober living facility like Simply Grace – which offers monitored support – increases the likelihood to remain abstinent after one year UP TO an 80% success rate.”
The evening includes a silent auction, exhibitors, entertainment, light refreshments, and a fashion show. Local celebrities, community leaders and residents of Simply Grace will grace the stage. Local and national designers showcase how their best pieces can transform into many confident looks.
Simply Grace is a non-profit 501-(c)3 which provides a safe, structured living environment to assist women recovering from substance abuse and exists to rebuild their lives and achieve long term recovery. 100% of the net proceeds from the event goes directly to the programming and operational fees for the Simply Grace homes. The theme this year is “Putting the Pieces Back Together” and Dallas District Attorney, Susan Hawk, as our key note speaker during the event. If you or anyone you know has been effected by any addiction issues, then you know how important this type of ongoing support has become to all of our families and friends.
