Seton Breast Care Center Luncheon Features High Fun And Fashion

THE SCENE: The Fairmont Hotel in Austin was recently the setting for Seton’s Celebration of Life luncheon. The event featured 750 of Austin’s most fashionable Sociables gathered for an impressive afternoon of memorable fundraising.

 

THE VIBE: The luncheon-chic crowd began in the foyer outside the Fairmont ballroom where guests mingled and shopped the Kendra Scott Charm Bar Pop-up, with 20% of sales going directly to the event proceeds.

 

Highlights of the main program’s festivities in the ballroom included a presentation of breast cancer survivors wearing their own curated looks courtesy of Kendra Scott Jewelry, Julian Gold fashions and Gatsby’s Clothier. Singer-songwriter Darden Smith brought the audience to their feet with a show-stopping performance, which featured a special song he wrote about a breast cancer survivor’s journey.

 

The crowd was then treated to a fashion show of Julian Gold’s 2018 fall line with men’s fashions, courtesy of Gatsby’s Clothier. The event was capped with a champagne and dessert reception where the fashionistas and philanthropists toasted a successful afternoon.

 

THE CAUSE: Co-chaired by Laura Burns, Mary Barker Evans, Brando Home, Marianne Rochelle and Anne Twomey, with Sarah Mansour and Andrea McWilliams serving as honorary chairs, the event raised over $450,000 for Seton Breast Care Center to provide cutting edge medical equipment, support and care for breast cancer awareness.
