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.
Perfectly Pink Party Perfect for Komen Foundation
Mother Nature felt compelled to add to the glow already emanating from the Brazos Hall for the Perfectly Pink Party benefiting the Komen Foundation Austin. The 3rd annual version of the gala soared to new heights with thanks to the committee led by Deb Davis Groves and Martha Coons. Additional help was received from across the business and private sectors of Central Texas. Special thanks are due to Presenting Sponsors Texas Breast Specialists and Texas Oncology.
Guests began the night with laughter and conversation, shed some tears during the program but responded with lots of bids during the auction led by Gayle Stallings. They enjoyed an excellent meal that magically appeared from Sterling Affairs that fueled the excitement the rest of the evening. Miguel Perez, Vice President Affiliate Network, spoke to great affect–receiving a standing ovation for his comments on the need to stop losing our loved ones to breast cancer. The Pink Diamond Awards cited some amazing people: Rick Reeder (Outstanding Volunteer); Stacy and Gary Mefford (The Ana Sierra Warrior Award); Community Action Inc. (Outstanding Advocacy); Megan Hancock (Outstanding Philanthropist); Wells Fargo (Community Partner).
