Hospice Austin’s Beauty of Life

Hospice Austin’s 11th annual Beauty of Life was a beautiful morning and a beautiful success! Thank you so much to Shannon Wolfson KXAN for being the best MC in the world; to Texas Oncology and Lexus of Austin & Lakeway, to Bob Barstow and all our other wonderful sponsors and fashion partners; to event chairs Robin Banister and Val Newberg; to Wayne and Lori Earl for sharing the story of their daughter, Esther; and to all the guests who came and shared their hearts so generously with us.

Due to Friday morning’s nationwide cyber-attack, our silent auction system was affected and so we were unable to hold the raffle during the event. However, the system was back up Friday afternoon, and we are pleased to announce that Wendy Fisher won the raffle. Congratulations, Wendy!

Donations for Beauty of Life are still rolling in, so we don’t have a final figure yet. However, we do know that this year’s Beauty of Life has raised a record-setting amount. This would not have been possible without the support of our community and all of you. We are so grateful – thank you.


Lori and Wayne Earl
