In times of darkness, there is a light of hope that shines. A small glimmer of hope can provide comfort, rest, and strength to those in need.
When disaster strikes, the American Red Cross is there to shelter, feed, and provide emotional support to those affected by the devastation. The not-for-profit organization also supplies more than forty percent of the nation’s blood supply, teaches lifesaving skills, provides international humanitarian aid, and supports military members and their families. These amazing acts of charity wouldn’t be possible without the organization’s generous volunteers and donors.
Luminaria 2013 will celebrate three local heroes who embody the values and vision of the organization. The event will be held on Friday, April 5 at the W Hotel Austin and will honor Kendra Scott, Bill Dorman, and Dell, Inc. for their contributions to the American Red Cross of Central Texas.
Co-chairs Terri Broussard Williams and Hannah Nokes will host this luminous event that will raise more than $125,000 for the local chapter. Tickets for this event are $150 and are available for purchase online.
“This year, we launched a brilliant new brand for the event with Luminaria, designed to celebrate the many ways the American Red Cross brings comfort and hope—and light—to our community’s darkest situations,” said Williams. “This cocktail-style event will honor three Central Texas heroes while guests enjoy an epicurean menu, shimmering cocktails, and live entertainment in a swanky downtown setting.”
Expected to be the most radiant event of the season, Luminaria 2013 will also recognize this year’s Rising Luminaries for their support of the American Red Cross. These luminaries are Sofia Avila, Victoria Avila, Boyer Derise, Ed Kargbo, Jamie Leasure, Loren Lintner, Holly Priestner, Conni Reed, Jennifer Ransom Rice, Perla Santillan, and Lemuel Williams.
