What: Key to the Cure Gala

Where: Brazos Hall

The lowdown: Nearly 500 philanthropic Austinites partied for a cause at the Key to the Cure Gala benefiting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. A performance by the Sugarhill Gang, a live auction, and delectable dishes prepared by celebrity chef Tim Love were among the evening’s highlights. Guests closed out the night at a rooftop after-party, sipping signature Tito’s vodka cocktails. The gala raised $330,000 for cystic fibrosis research and care.
