On Thursday, May 19th, as part of this St. David's annual "Toast of the Town" fundraising drive, Ericka and Justin Freels hosted a lively and illuminating party featuring special guest Mark Updegrove, president, and CEO of the LBJ Foundation and Presidential Historian for ABC News. After discovering that the party needed a last-minute change of venue, Ericka and Justin Freels stepped up to the plate, hosting the fun event in their gorgeous home. Despite the change in scenery, the intimate 30-person party was a hit among guests.  

Upon arrival, guests were treated to drinks, light refreshments, and lively conversations. Many excited guests arrived at the party with copies of Updengrove's latest book, Incomparable Grace: JFK in the Presidency, in tow. It is a rare party that includes not only delicious food, drinks, and merriment but also the chance to learn from an accomplished historian and author. . .
