Two dozen Dallas chefs lead October 16 fundraiser dine-around for Dallas 24 Hour Club, a nonprofit helping the homeless

A solid lineup of chefs is planned for an October 16 fundraiser benefitting Dallas 24 Hour Club, a well-established nonprofit that provides sober transitional living for homeless men and women who want a life away from alcohol and substance abuse.

Chefs John Tesar (Knife), Katherine Clapner (Dude, Sweet Chocolate), Peter Barlow (Flora Street Cafe), Richie Blankenship (CBD Provisions), Tim Byres (Smoke), Tom Fleming (Crossroads Diner), Matt Balke (Bolsa), Mico Rodriguez (Mesero), Jeffrey Hobbs (The Slow Bone), Sean Fry, Misti Norris and Jon Thompson are among the two dozen slated to cook for the dine-around event. The evening begins at 5:30 pm on Sunday, October 16, at the Dallas Woman’s Forum, 4607 Ross Ave., Dallas. (Tickets here.)

According to their website, the 24 Hour Club was founded in 1969 for alcoholics to have a place to meet 24 hours a day, hence the name. Today, they’ve grown to one of the largest single site sober transitional programs in the State of Texas and currently have the capacity to service up to 67 men and women at their Ross Avenue location. Their program focuses on the 12-step model of recovery and incorporates meeting attendance, sponsorship, and service work as part of the living guidelines to further increase chances for long term sobriety and independent living skills. They also provide on-site drug and alcohol screening, plus shelter and housing for up to eighteen months per stay for recovering alcoholics and drug addicts at a minimal cost.
