Red, Hot & Soul 2014

Saturday, May 3, 2014
ZACH's Topfer Theatre • Bobbi Pavilion

Honoring James C. Armstrong, Cornerstone of the Arts in Austin
Bobbi Topfer and Armando Zambrano, Gala Co-Chairs 

On Saturday, May 3, 2014, ZACH Theatre will host the most stylish and fun party of the season–Red, Hot & Soul. The dynamic duo of Bobbi Topfer and Armando Zambrano are back to put on the Ritz as Co-Chairs of this year’s fabulous event—THE GREAT ZACHSBY— and it’s guaranteed to be a glamorous, sexy and decadent evening worthy of Jay Gatsby!

Our extravagant celebration begins with a cocktail reception inside ZACH’s speakeasy, also known as the grand Topfer Theatre lobby and Serra Skyline lounge, followed by a sumptuous dinner by the Four Seasons, ZACH vocalists and a lively auction under the sparkling Bobbi Pavilion. Then, we’ll move into the Topfer Theatre for specially created entertainment, and shimmy the night away on the dance floor where the party really takes off. Red, Hot, & Soul 2014 is sure to be the cat’s meow!

Event proceeds benefit ZACH Theatre, one of Austin’s most vibrant and innovative performing arts organizations.
