Results of Our Most Recent Events

Our 14th Annual Campaign Breakfast was our most successful fundraising event to date!

Thank you to our Sponsors, Underwriters, In-Kind donors and the 100’s of supporters who gave at the Breakfast!! Thanks to you we had a 34% increase in giving when compared to our breakfast last year!

Carroll Jackson kicked off the Breakfast by introducing the Rt. Reverend John H. MacNaughton.  Rev. MacNaughton led a crowd of approximately 450 people in prayer and spoke about how he brought the PDAP program to San Antonio in 1977.  Kirk Hewitt, Rise Recovery’s Board Treasurer and Breakfast Chairman, gave a state of the union address as it pertained to Rise Recovery.  Trish Frye, Program Director, talked about the genesis of Rise Recovery and how the PDAP program is not going anywhere but is actually building steam and moving us towards the future.  Jeff Jay, keynote presenter and clinical interventionist, gave a wonderful presentation about addiction and intervention.

In closing, we were blessed with another successful fundraising Breakfast.  Thank you to all of our Sponsors, In-Kind Donors and Underwriters!

We are looking forward to our 15th Annual Campaign Breakfast!
