PARTY FOR GOOD
At the heart of Mission Capital’s work is the belief that community problems can be solved. Join us on Wednesday, November 1, 2017 (6-10 pm at JW Marriott in Austin, Texas), for a celebration of our community’s greatest changemakers—a Party for Good! Sponsorship and tables now available!
2017 COMMUNITY LEADER OF THE YEAR
Mission Capital is proud to celebrate Senator Kirk Watson for his extraordinary service in support of
this community we all love!
A longtime public servant and a former Mayor of Austin, Senator Watson was first elected to the Texas Senate (District 14) in 2006. Repeatedly recognized for his legislative and coalition-building work, in 2011, Senator Watson proposed “10 Goals in 10 Years” to transform the health and economy of Central Texas. Through this vision, Central Texas welcomed the first class of students to the Dell Medical School at The University of Texas in 2016, will open Seton Healthcare Family’s new teaching hospital in 2017, made Austin a center of comprehensive care through the LIVESTRONG Institutes, and established high-quality, neighborhood-based health clinics for uninsured, low-income residents of Travis County.
Senator Watson has served on numerous nonprofit boards, including Austin’s American Cancer Society, Ballet Austin, Community Partnership for the Homeless, El Buen Samaritano and KLRU. He is the former Chair of the Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce, Texas Advisory Board for Environmental Defense and CAMPO, the primary transportation planning agency for Central Texas.
Celebrating People Powering Good
Mission-driven organizations and people are at the heart of solving complex community problems.
