Football-themed outdoor afternoon featuring a silent auction boutique, live music by the Dixie Daddies Band, and an all-American barbecue. Proceeds benefit The Rescue Mission.
This year, The Rescue Mission is delighted to honor Bob Bryant with the Léni Fé Bland award. He will be recognized for his committed partnership in the work of recovery through his service on the Fighting Back Steering Committee and as the founder of the Daniel Bryant Youth and Family Treatment Center.
The funds raised at this event make it possible for the Mission to offer a successful 12-month residential recovery program, as well as provide for homeless guests. Last year, the Bayou event raised over $320,000 to assist people seeking recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. The Mission has helped over 500 people achieve recovery over the last fourteen years.
Rolf Geyling, the Rescue Mission President, said “While only 21% of those completing treatment programs nationally maintain their sobriety beyond five years, we are proud that 56% of our graduates remain in recovery over this same time period."
For more information or to buy tickets ($150), please call the Rescue Mission at (805) 966-1316 ext. 105.
