On Sunday, February 27, 2011, LifeWorks rolled out the red carpet at Austin Music Hall for our Academy Awards Gala. Guests were treated to dinner, drinks, dessert, and interactive entertainment, all in honor of supporting the community.
None of this could have been possibe without the help of our studio sponsors: Silicon Labs and Crexendo. Additionally, we would like to thank our Gala Co-Chairs,Bill Pitts, Jose Buitron, and Trey Halbert; our Auction Chair, Jamie Tower; Gala Decor, Kennedy Creative; Gala Ambience, ILIOS Lighting and Big House Sound; Media Sponsor, INSIDE Magazine; and all of our Auction Committee members. Without their help, LifeWorks wouldn’t have the necessary resources to pull off such a great event and in turn help transition Austin area youth and families from crisis to safety and success.
We also give a special thanks to Delish, Build A Sign, Castleview Productions, and White Glove Technology.
About 140 items were auctioned off and the money raised will go straight to helping our programs. For the second row in a year, LifeWorks supporters proved how dedicated they are to assisting those in the community who need it the most. As Susan, LifeWorks Executive Director, stated at the gala, “We must take care of people’s basic needs before we can address their problems.” Becauses of how generous our donors and sponors have been, LifeWorks can provide those needs for Austin youth and families.
