Liberty Place Recovery Center for Women will host its annual Holiday Luncheon on Saturday, November 18, 2017 from 1-3 p.m. at First Christian Church, located at 412 West Main Street in Richmond. This distinctive event will feature lunch, a decorated table auction, and live and silent auctions of high quality prizes. There are 144 tickets available to the public for $30 per person. Proceeds will benefit Liberty Place Recovery Center for Women, a residential substance abuse recovery program operated by Kentucky River Foothills Development Council, a local Community Action Agency committed to improving the community and promoting self-sufficiency. This special event is an opportunity for the center to create awareness of the program while providing a social event for Madison County. The luncheon will include savory food and sweet treats. During the luncheon a Liberty Place Program Graduate will speak to the group about her life-changing experience at Liberty Place. Rev. Kent Gilbert of Union Church in Berea will return for the third year to serve as the event auctioneer for the live and themed table auction, which will include gift packages sponsored by local businesses and community members. This year some of the live auction items include UK Basketball tickets, homemade quilts, electronics, and arts & crafts. Many of the table themes are unknown at this point but as they come in they will be promoted on the center’s Facebook page. A portion of the proceeds will go into the residents’ events budget, which will allow them to attend special activities and training, such as AA conferences. The remaining money raised will support Liberty Place program operations.
