The Women’s Auxiliary of Nexus Recovery Center invites everyone to attend the Spring Luncheon on Monday, April 23, 2018 at the Dallas Country Club. Luncheon chairs Lauren Gillette and Lindsay Billingsley are proud to announce Will Bracken Evans as the speaker. Honorary chairs are Cai and Robin Glackin. Liz Pasquinelli is president of the Women’s Auxiliary of Nexus.
Will Bracken Evans was born in Houston, though he spent his idyllic childhood in Tyler, Texas on his family’s ranch. While in middle school, he moved with his siblings and mother to Highland Park. While still in high school, Mr. Evans joined the Marine Corps and after serving his country, returned to Dallas to spend more than 25 years in the commercial real estate business. It was during his successful career in real estate when he began his downward spiral into addiction. On October 5, 1989, Will walked into a treatment center for drug and alcohol addic- tion, which would ultimately save his life. The Women’s Auxiliary of Nexus is honored to have Will share his story. After almost three decades of sobriety, Will continues to actively participate in his own recovery by working with others and sharing his story of hope. He is married to Mary Elizabeth Evans and has two sons and two step- children. He currently spends his time between Dallas and New York City.
GRATITUDE, COMMITMENT, BLESSING, ANGEL, HOPE— these are the words the clients of Nexus Recovery Center begin to recognize in themselves and others every day, as they recover from trauma-based alcohol and drug addiction. Support from the community, underwriters and sponsors for this luncheon enables the Auxiliary to continue to serve these women and children in crisis.
All proceeds will benefit Nexus Recovery Center in Dallas, where 2,091 women and 305 children were served last year. This integrated program has a continuum of care that includes prevention and intervention, detoxification, residential recovery treatment, early childhood and high school education onsite, afterschool and summer programs for school aged children, life and parenting skills training, outpatient care, transitional housing and alumni programs.
Sponsorships and underwriting are available priced from $2,500 to $20,000. Individual tickets begin at $200 with limited availability. Visit the web site at www.nexusrecovery.org, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 972-322-8416.
