Women of Substance

The Women of Substance Luncheon honors prominent local women who serve as role models that our residents and graduates look to for inspiration.

11:00 AM to 2:00 PM

26th Annual Women of Substance Luncheon Presented by the
James P. Raymond Jr. Foundation & Oscar J. Tolmas Charitable Trust

Each year 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. Due to the luncheon’s cancellation in 2020, our chosen Honorees and Award Recipients will remain for the 2021 event.

2021 Honorees: Anne Raymond, Leigh Whitman Director, Elizabeth “Liz” Copeland
2021 Awards: Susan Tyler (Richard “Buzzy” Gaiennie Award), Bill Gaiennie (Volunteer of the Year), Michele Limoges (Alumna of the Year)

*Due due to the continued impact of COVID-19 in 2021 and unforeseen disastrous effects of Hurricane Ida, there will be no silent auction this year. The auction relies heavily on support from the small business community, and we felt that this was not the appropriate time for solicitation. However, there will still be a live auction, along with some new and alternative ways to support Bridge House / Grace House at this year’s luncheon!

If you are attending the luncheon, please be advised that masks are required except when actively eating or drinking and proof of vaccination or negative COVID-19 PCR test within 72 hours must be shown upon entry.
