What is A Toast to East Texas?

A Toast to East Texas is a series of 10-12 parties that will take place over a period of one month, April to May, benefiting the projects of the CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances Foundation 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. Sponsorships and individual tickets will be available.

A Toast to East Texas Invitation

What project will the 2018 funds support?

The funds raised will go to support the dedicated Pediatric Examination Rooms in the new Emergency Care Center at CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital - Tyler. Thirteen thousand children come through the doors of the ER every year. This dedicated Pediatric space – apart from the adult emergency area – will shield children from potentially frightening adult emergencies. The rooms will have many child-friendly features to help make a child’s visit as smooth as possible and minimize stress. The area will be designed with attention to the small things that can make a big difference to children and their families.

How does the reservation process work?

  • Reservations are accepted by mail or by submission of the online form.
