Several hundred invitees recently gathered at Austin’s legendary Driskill Hotel to honor the man who is fittingly known as known as “The Man, The Legend” in many Texas circles. The party celebrated the 80th birthday of James Armstrong, who has supported many of Austin’s most esteemed and beloved organizations including ZACH Scott Theatre, the Austin Symphony Orchestra, and whose Armstrong School of Music for future musical child prodigies bears his name.
The venue, produced by event extraordinaire, Victoria Hentrich, was transformed into a magical oasis of vibrant shades of red, highlighting the grandeur of Austin’s oldest and most luxurious hotel. Upon arrival proceeded up the grand staircase into The Citadel Club, which was decorated with chic and stunning flowers by David Kurio along with room-size black and white vintage pictures of the guest of honor. In hotel’s main ballroom, guests sipped on cocktails and reconnected with old friends who flew in from Dallas, Washington DC, New York City and beyond.more
There are a small handful of fundraisers that can hit every high note and turn the whole evening into pure magic. This year’s Xanadu-themed Red, Hot and Soul for ZACH Theatre was that and more.
It was my first venture to this annual event, but I had heard praises of the evening for years. Bobbi Topfer and Larry Connelly were chairs this year, and you just can’t go wrong with that.
From the moment you walked into the ballroom at the Hilton Austin, you were immediately thrust into a world of disco beats, satin jumpsuits and dazzling shirts of glitter and sparkles. People took this theme seriously!more
