Baltimore, MD – Award-winning actress, Kristen Johnston (3rd Rock from the Sun, Exes), will be the featured speaker at the annual Mae Abraham Legacy Luncheon to be held at the Baltimore Four Seasons Hotel on Wednesday, May 13th, 2015.
This event, formerly known as the Women in Recovery Luncheon, is an annual fundraiser – now in its 8th year – sponsored by Father Martin’s Ashley. The event raises awareness and funds for scholarships and programming initiatives for women at the inpatient addiction treatment center located in Havre de Grace.
Johnston is the acclaimed author of Guts: The Endless Follies and Tiny Triumphs of a Giant Disaster – an autobiography which chronicles her addiction to alcohol and pills that began when she was in high school.

With a wide variety of stage, screen and television roles to her credit, Johnston is also the founder and executive director of SLAM (Sobriety, Learning And Motivation), a non-profit geared toward building a sober high school in New York City (SLAMNYC.org). She also teaches at NYU.
