We are so excited to announce that on Thursday, September 29th we will be hosting Magdalene’s first-annual signature event: Rebuilding H.E.R. (Heal, Empower, Recover)! Starting at 5:00 P.M. at Mt. Sequoyah, we will be celebrating the fifth birthday of Magdalene Serenity House by honoring our Founders and recognizing the achievements of our graduates on their healing and recovery journeys.


On September 29th, 2017, Magdalene opened their doors to our very first residents. We want to honor that historic day with a celebratory evening featuring our inspiring graduates and top supporters. Founders, volunteers, and sponsors, along with all Magdalene graduates and their families, will be invited to join the Board of Directors and Staff for this special event.


Our program will include a speech from one of our residents who will share her story of hope, healing, recovery, and work towards self-sufficiency. Executive Director, April Bachrodt will be presenting all graduates with a meaningful keepsake gift. After mentioning several historical milestones for Magdalene over the last five years and honoring those who have made our growth and success possible, we will be unveiling a new display listing our Founders that will be permanently featured inside the house. Finally, Board Chair, Lowell Grisham, will provide a special recognition to April who has served with the organization from day one.


We are thankful for each and every one of our sponsors who have made this event possible. Our Presenting sponsor will be Legacy Bank. Our Empowering sponsor is CitiScapes. Our Awakening sponsors include KUAF, Collier Drug Stores, KNWA, PBS, Methodist Foundation of AR, and Marshalltown. Our Healing sponsors are Adventure Subaru, Odom Law Firm, Coldwell Banker Harris McHaney & Faucette, and Centennial Bank. And lastly, our Rebuilding sponsors are Arvest, Ozarks Electric, Greenwood Gearhart, Bank of Fayetteville, and Eureka Pizza.
