Luminaria Sponsors Spread Hope and Light

On April 5th, the American Red Cross of Central Texas held our annual gala. This year, Luminaria celebrated the many ways the Red Cross spreads light and hope to those most in need, raising funds for measles relief in countries around the world that do not have access to these resources.

It was a truly spectacular evening at the W Hotel in downtown Austin, made possible by our generous partners in our community. We could not have done it without their support and are so proud to belong to a community with such a philanthropic spirit.

YetterColeman LLP was our Presenting Sponsor and Lady Bird Johnson Humanitarian Award Sponsor. YetterColeman is a nationally recognized  litigation boutique with offices in Austin and in Houston. They have been a great supporter of the Red Cross and we look forward to continuing our partnership.

Two fantastic organizations were Illuminating Sponsors – KXAN and Pierpont Communications.

KXAN has been an outspoken and involved Red Cross supporter. After the explosion in West, TX they partnered with our Red Cross chapter and with H-E-B in our disaster response. Click through for video and article.


Pierpont Communications, one of the largest independent communications firms in the Southwest, has been a supporter of the Red Cross in our community for several years and has been a huge asset to our organization.
