A Toast to East Texas
A Toast to East Texas is a series of ten to twelve parties that will take place over a period of one month, April to May, benefiting the projects of the CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances Women’s Board. Generous patrons from the community will hold private parties in their home or at a location of their own choosing at no cost to the CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances Foundation. Patrons may become Sponsors or purchase tickets to participate. The parties will be unique, with different themes, menus and entertainment, and the number of attendees will vary.
