The WSL hosts two major events each year to provide financial support to the Austin Symphony Orchestra and its programs.
We invite you to join us in September for all of the Jewel Ball festivities. The season begins with Soiree, a semi-formal dance for 9th and 10th graders, usually held the first weekend of the month. The Fashion Luncheon, with its celebrity keynote speaker, is held later in September on the Friday just before our signature event, the Jewel Ball, an evening gala at the Palmer Events Center.
Join us again in early February at the WSL’s spring event and Austin’s premier children’s fashion show, the Red Haute Valentine Party and Children’s Style Show, which offers a lovely luncheon, a market-place, and modeling opportunities for toddlers through teens.
