25th Annual Women of Substance Luncheon
Presented by James P. Raymond Jr. Foundation
& Oscar J. Tolmas Charitable Trust

Each spring Bridge House / Grace House hosts the Women of Substance Luncheon to honor local female role models for the many women in our substance use disorder treatment program who are striving to become sober and self-sufficient. Three outstanding women from the New Orleans community, who we feel possess the ideals our Grace House women look for in a role model, are chosen as the honorees.

In addition to a great meal in the beautiful Audubon Tea Room, the luncheon also features a large silent auction, a live auction and raffle, entertainment, recognizes three other individual honorees: a “Richard ‘Buzzy’ Gaiennie Award” recipient, a “Volunteer of the Year Award” recipient, and a Grace House “Alumna of the Year” recipient.
