A Toast to East Texas

A Toast to East Texas 2020

Dear Friends of the Foundation,

For over 80 years CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital – Tyler has been known as “the baby hospital” of Northeast Texas. Did you know that CHRISTUS delivered over 3000 in 2019? These numbers are astounding. While our high level of advanced care in the labor and delivery unit is undeniable, the aesthetics and equipment need major renovation and expansion. The most recent modernization of The Birth Center was in 1988!

The CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances Women’s Board has chosen The Violet Door Project, the expansion of The Birth Center at CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital – Tyler as its 2020 fundraising mission. We invite you to help us leave a legacy for expectant mothers in Northeast Texas and to pledge your resources to sponsor the fifth annual Foundation Women’s Board fundraising event, A Toast to East Texas 2020. Once again generous East Texans will host a series of unique parties and special events at some of the most exceptional homes and venues in our area. Every penny raised will support The Violet Door Project, and this revitalization will provide critical additional space in The Birth Center for mothers and staff, while transforming the existing space into a beautiful and modern birth environment.

We are honored to have a hand in the expansion of this vital center and we pray that you will consider supporting The Violet Door Project.
