What: Turn It up for Change
Where: W Austin Hotel
The lowdown: Austinites flocked to the W Austin for a special Austin Pride installment of the hotel's ongoing Turn It up for Change series benefiting the Human Rights Campaign. The party doubled as an unveiling of three unique art pieces by Baron Von Fancy that were transformed into Snapchat filters. Every time a filter is used through the end of August, $1 is donated to HRC. Guests were treated to delicious drinks and sips as well as DJ tunes and entertainment from hosts Cupcake and Sabel Scities.
