Robert Godwin has been covering the non-profit scene in Austin from the time of blue jeans and backyard barbeques to the black-tie galas of today. With over 20,000 events recorded by word and photo, Godwin leads the leagues in rubber chicken consumption. As a constant witness to the power of publicity, he now seeks to enlist a legion of assistants by sharing his knowledge of the publicity process.
Toast Visits Lonesome Dove
St. David’s Foundation CEO Earl Maxwell has called Toast of the Town parties “experiences” rather than events. That was absolutely the case when Toast visited the Wittliff Collections at Texas State University. Event hosts President Denise Trauth and Dr. John Huffman joined special guests Sally and Bill Wittliff in greeting guests. The current exhibit of Kate Breakey’s work drew a lot of attention–but the tour of the museum with commentary by Bill Wittliff was simply priceless. As a screenwriter and producer of the Lonesome Dove mini-series, Bill has a wealth of stories from initial concept to final product. His stories alone could make another mini-series.
After reluctantly leaving the museum, guests discovered quite a bonus in dinner at the President’s House. Although the menu stayed in the trail drive theme, it was far above what might be thought of as chuck-wagon cuisine.
