A ‘Elegant, But Messy’ Ceremony Benefited from the House of Grace
Tonight in Centennial Plaza, there was a one-of-a-kind party benefiting the Home of Grace, which provides religious rehabilitation for men and women.
The “Dressy, but Messy Gala” is unique because a pair of pots were auctioned for $1,000. You might be wondering why they would pay such a high price for silverware, but that’s because upon arrival, guests were told there would be none.
Therefore, many guests had to do without it, enjoying their dinners with their fingers. Very chaotic, but the organizers say the battle with addiction is as well.
Aside from the auction, there was live music, food, and testimonials from Home of Grace alumni.
Through their stories, the disguise-inspired party aimed to “expose the stigmas of addiction” surrounding addiction recovery. Home of Grace CEO Josh Barton said, “A lot of people don’t understand. They think of someone with an addiction as a homeless person who has been left out. They don’t understand that there are people out there dealing with addiction to prescription pills. They look like any Someone else. They will work like everyone else, but suffer.”
The night was chaotic, but successful, and got money for Home of Grace to award scholarships to individuals who needed help getting into their rehab program.
