What is A Toast to East Texas?

A Toast to East Texas is a series of ten 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. See our invitation for party details!

Is this event in place of the Pearls & Promises Gala?

Pearls & Promises Gala, an event hosted by the CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances Women’s Board, had a wonderful ten year run! A Toast to East Texas replaces the Gala as the major annual fundraising event of the CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances Women’s Board.

What project will the 2016 funds support?

The funds raised will go to the purchase of a state-of-the-art Mobile Mammography Coach, replacing the well-worn Big Pink Bus that has served the East Texas community for 15 years. Over 2600 women throughout our region are screened annually. It is an important weapon in the fight against breast cancer.
