Neither the rain nor the cold could keep Austinites away from Beautify Bash on November 7. We started the evening by presenting awards to Austin’s leading environmental stewards and then continued with celebrations throughout the evening. We kept cozy at Umlauf Sculpture Garden & Museum with walled tents, heaters, and warm beverages. Guests enjoyed music by DJ Girlfriend ATX, drinks courtesy of Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Dulce Vida Organic Tequila, Total Wine & More, and New Belgium Brewing, and a silent auction with packages from local businesses such as Uchi, Wanderlust Yoga, YETI, REI, Loro, Alamo Drafthouse, Kendra Scott, and more.
Thanks to our guests and sponsors we raised $51,000.
Why does that matter?
By supporting our annual Beautify Bash event, our supporters not only made it possible for our guests and awardees to have a fun evening, but they’ve also given our educators the resources they need to educated the next generation of environmental leaders, and our community engagement team the resources necessary to support thousands of volunteers on hundreds of cleanups annually.
We at Keep Austin Beautiful could not mobilize 30,000+ volunteers and 12,000+ students every year without this level of community support.
