Our Outreach and Business Development staffs were busy making the rounds in Dallas the final weekend of August.

Dallas Outreach Coordinator Ashley Martel reports that La Hacienda sponsored a table at the fourth annual Timothy O’Farrell Recovery fundraising event Saturday, August 25, at Toyota Stadium. The non-profit corporation helps addicts and alcoholics afford recovery treatment.

That same weekend, Ashley led La Hacienda representatives on a visit with Casey Ellsworth of the Dallas Fire Department.

“Casey is an amazing fellow and we are proud to know him,” said Director of Utilization Management and Partnerships Cade Saurage. “He took us behind the scenes and shared some exciting stories.”

“We want to thank to him and all of his fellow firefighters for their hospitality and all they do to serve the community.”

“La Hacienda is honored to support first responders in numerous cities around the state,” added Cade.

Both events are examples of how La Hacienda seeks partnerships with like-minded organizations around the state to help sponsor worthy activities that encourage recovery and sober living.
