2019 celebration of life luncheon

The 20th annual Celebration of Life Luncheon, presented by Kendra Scott, raised close to $500,000 this past September for The Seton Breast Care Center (80%) and the ZTA Foundation (20%). The Austin Alumnae Chapter of Zeta Tau Alpha in partnership with The Seton Breast Care Center put on the charitable luncheon of the year with a fashion show by Julian Gold featuring its 2018 Fall/Winter looks exclusively tailored for the Celebration of Life. The Breast Cancer Survivors and Fighters walking the runway was the highlight of the event for many.

We hope that you will join us for the 2019 Celebration of Life Luncheon Friday, November 15th at the JW Marriott.

Registration is now open.  If you are interested in purchasing a table or becoming a sponsor of the event please contact luncheon chair Lara Burns Boyda at You can also find more information at:
