St. David’s Foundation’s Toast Of The Town Sizzles

THE SCENE: Each spring St. David’s Foundation’s Toast of the Town wraps up the Austin social season with a bang. Over the course of six weeks, intimate parties – no, make that one-of-a-kind experiences – attract a diverse array of VIPs from many branches of Austin’s burgeoning social scene. This year was no exception with a record 22 Toast experiences for even the most discerning partygoer.

THE VIBE: The Toast party season literally kicked into high gear from the very first party, Life in the Fast Lane with Jeff Mosing where guests were able to view dozens of classic vintage and muscle cars. The fun continued for the following 21 parties. Those inspired by the sporty kickoff party could also rub elbows with various head coaches from various University of Texas Athletic Departments during later events. The sophistication of downtown Austin was also on display with the opportunity to enjoy unique experiences such as Dinner with Mayor Steve Adler and Celebrity Chef Tyson Cole, and An Austin Kind of Night with Lyle Lovett at the W Hotel and ACL Live. The festivities concluded with a quintessentially Austin experience – an outdoor concert with legendary musician Bob Schneider.

THE CAUSE: Toast of the Town, chaired by Cassie Bale with Lesa Rossick serving as vice chair, raised over $1.5 million for the St. David’s Neal Kocurek Scholarship which provides funding for college students seeking to pursue a career in the medical field.
