The Well Community, the non-profit organization serving adults dealing with severe mental illnesses, will host its Sixth Annual Recovery Live benefit event Saturday, December 1, at the newly renovated Eagle Ford School, 1601 Chalk Hill Road 75208. Event starts at 7:30 p.m. with a Neighborhood Spotlight on local Oak Cliff Students and a Silent Auction. The Texas Gypsies are the featured entertainment. Tickets start at $75 and can be purchased online at or at the door.

 “We are thrilled to be invited to be the first event to be held at the newly renovated Eagle Ford School, such an iconic building in Oak Cliff built in 1923. It was the school attended by Bonnie Parker, of Bonnie and Clyde fame. Recovery Live is our biggest event of the year and will carry a ‘Roaring Twenties’ theme in honor of when Eagle Ford School was built,” says Alice Zaccarello, Executive Director of The Well Community. “The event is always great fun, and a must-attend fundraiser for those who want to help make recovery possible for our members.”

Brooke and Jason Moser serve as chairs for the Sixth Annual Recovery Live and former news journalist Brett Shipp will serve as the master of ceremony. In addition, the Neighborhood Spotlight includes musical numbers from Ben Coleman, Emma Kitto, Nathaniel Ogren, Clare Palmer, Maddie Schuch and South of the Ordinary (Claire Braddick, Reuben Heritage and Larry Johnson)*.  The Texas Gypsies will bring their mix of jazz, swing and other sounds of the Great Gatsby era, providing just the right music for an evening of dancing and fun.

Artwork created by members of The Well Community will be available for purchase during the event. Among the items for the Silent Auction include gift certificates for local dining and retail establishments, entertainment venues and autographed memorabilia. Additional items are being accepted now.
