Anteks hosted more than 75 guests from the Women’s Auxiliary of Nexus and the Preston Center Rotary Club on September 12 in celebration of the upcoming Westapher Auction and Golf Tournament. The crowd perused the sophisticated rustic home furnishings throughout the Design District storefront and shared their excitement for the October events at this Kick Off occasion.

Kick Off party and Westapher auction emcee, CBS Sports Anchor Gina Miller, and tournament Golf Chair, Gregg Ballew, shared announcements while the crowd nibbled on bites from Southern Comfort Catering and savored wine from Scardello. Gina detailed that Laurie Sutherlin and Kathy Cholette, event co-chairs, have set the auction and dinner at the Preston Hollow home of Faye Briggs on October 6th and the tournament at Stevens Park Golf Course on October 14th. Rotary members applauded when they learned that legendary sports anchor, Scott Murray, will be the golf emcee and that Fox Sports Southwest girls, Kamie and Liddy, will be there to mingle with the golfers.

Nexus Recovery Center has been the beneficiary of the Westapher Auction and Golf Tournament since 2005 yet Nexus has been turning lives around for women and their children for more than 40 years. The center which sits on a 12 acre campus in East Dallas, offers a full range of recovery services from detoxification through residential and outpatient treatment –even aftercare and housing services. Nexus offers programs for adult women and adolescent girls ages 13 to 17, including those who are pregnant or accompanied by children. Nexus is one of only a few national programs that invite women to bring their children into treatment. Nexus is the only treatment center in Texas that accepts late term pregnant and newly parenting adolescents. By allowing children to accompany their mothers into treatment and by providing treatment regardless of ability to pay, Nexus removes barriers for recovery.
