THE SCENE: Nearly 1,300 fun-loving Sociables gathered on the lawn at Camp Mabry for the Elizabeth Ann Seton Board’s Evening Under the Stars spring gala. Guests were treated to an evening of food, mingling and entertainment that included a live performance by Robert Earl Keen, a delicious dinner catered by 34thStreet Café, a fun an lively “Heads or Tails” live auction that netted over $150,000. It concluded with a lively after party where guests danced the night away to DJ Hear No Evil while noshing on late-night fare courtesy of P. Terry’s and Stinton’s Bistro.
THE VIBE: The crowd, dressed in their best Austin Chic attire created a fun and welcoming environment. The ladies looked especially radiant in their cocktail dresses of varying colors that served as an homage to the Texas wildflower season.
THE CAUSE: The sold-out event co-chaired by Stephanie Jastrow and Lindsey Majors raised over $700,000 for the Seton Community Health Centers and the Sister Gertrude Levy Endowment for the Poor, which provides monetary assistance for patients in need of urgent medical care.
