2017 Toast of the Town Invitation

Watch your mail for the 2017 Toast of the Town  invitation booklet or view invitation online.

Toast of the Town is our signature series of unique parties and special events at some of the most exceptional homes and venues in Central Texas. Bringing together engaging people, places and experiences every spring, Toast of the Town is the talk of the town.

The celebrated series is a fundraising drive for the St. David’s Neal Kocurek Scholarship Fund. St. David’s Foundation Community Fund matches two-to-one all Toast of the Town contributions, resulting in three dollars toward a health-related scholarship for every dollar donated. In 2016 alone, Toast of the Town helped fund 55 scholarships.


Toast of the Town 2017 underwriting sponsorships are available at several levels. Sponsors receive a range of benefits for their gifts. See the benefits chart for details.
