The fourth annual Dinner with Friends took place on May 5 at Austin Proper Hotel. The evening brought together a wonderful group of friends to raise crucial support for our mission and work. Guests enjoyed delicious food and drinks, music from a local Spanish guitarist, David Córdoba, inspiring Friends Austin speakers, the viewing of a new film and a lively auction and Fund a Need with auctioneer Lydia Fenet.
Thank you to Co-Chairs Amy Baer and Susanne Denison for their leadership. We are very grateful for our generous Dinner with Friends sponsors: Presenting Partner Vista Equity Partners, Auction Sponsor Kirkland & Ellis, Bar Sponsor Vinson & Elkins and Tory & Milam Newby, Raffle Sponsor Ernst & Young and Music Sponsors Higginbotham and Vela Wood. Through the incredible generosity of our community, more than $1 million was raised to help break the cycle of generational poverty.
