Toast to East Texas 101

The Overview

What is a Toast to East Texas?
A Toast to East Texas is a series of 10-12 parties that take place in the fall benefiting the projects of the CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances Foundation Women’s Board. Generous patrons from the community will host private parties in their home or at a location of their own choosing at no cost to the Foundation. Sponsorships and individual tickets are available.
What Project Will the Funds Support?

100 percent of the proceeds raised by A Toast to East Texas will go to support the annual CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances Foundation Women’s Board Project. Each year the Women’s Board champions a project of CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances with the goal of supporting excellence in health care specifically for the women and children of our community.
