Preview the fabulous Jewel Ball silent auction! Whether you are attending in person or virtually, the auction will have something for you. Whether it’s a one of a kind girls guided girls trip through the best of Round Top, estate planning for your family, football tickets to your favorite team, family portraits, an indulgent staycation at the Magdalena followed by a glass or two of mezcal or light whiskey and some of the best skin care Austin has to offer, we’ve got you covered. Be on the lookout Wednesday evening for a text and/or email for your link to register for the event and bid on the auction. The Jewel Ball Silent Auction closes at 4 pm on Saturday, September 18.

The bartenders do not accept payment.
