East House will host WNBA All-Star Athlete, NCAA Champion and mental health advocate Chamique Holdsclaw at their annual Hope & Recovery Celebration on Friday, September 29 at 11:00 am.
With an eye toward making the annual event more accessible to the broader community, this year’s celebration will be a blend of two events— a conversation with Holdsclaw at the GEVA Theatre followed by a very limited VIP lunch at Native Restaurant.
The annual, Hope & Recovery Celebration fundraising event is a celebration of people living successfully in recovery from mental health and substance use disorders – not just within East House programs – but also the broader community.
Holdsclaw, an award-winning basketball player, has had an incredible career. She played for the Women’s Basketball University of Tennessee Lady Volunteers and Hall of Fame Coach Pat Summit leading the Lady Vols to three straight NCAA Championships, a first in Women’s College Basketball history. She would go on to be the #1 Pick in the 1999 WNBA Draft by the Washington Mystics, won the WNBA Rookie of the Year Award, made six WNBA All-Star appearances and won an Olympic Gold Medal at the 2000 Sydney Games on Team USA.
What many may not know is that Holdsclaw is in recovery from depression and now serves as a mental health and wellness ambassador with the JED Foundation.
East House is honored to welcome her to our 2023 Hope & Recovery Celebration.
Ticket prices start at $30 each for the in-person conversation and a limited number of VIP in-person reservations are available for $175. Group ticket discounts are available.
