Cocktails and Charity
Charitable Austinites raise a glass — and funds — for Texas healthcare
What: Cocktails for a Cause
Where: The Belmont
The details: Austinites converged on May 19 for a night of drinks and revelry to support Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas. The annual Cocktails for a Cause affair raises funds as well as awareness for the organization's mission of providing healthcare and education across the state.
At the event, guests were treated to fun signature cocktails — like an homage to Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and a "Safe Sex on the Beach" — as well as cute poems from Typewriter Rodeo. In all, the event raised $60,000 for Planned Parenthood.
Who: Ken Lambrecht, Shavonne Henderson, Alissa Parsley, Katie Hansen, Sue Hammer, Faye Chandler, Tom Jacobs, Dano Johnson, Davida Dwyer-Johnson, AJ Smullen, and Amy Shipherd.
