Austinites attend the ultimate summer pool party in the name of philanthropy
What: Amazon Wave Pool-anthropy Party
Where: W Hotel Residences
The lowdown: Guests flooded the pool at the W Residences on Sunday for the Amazon Wave Pool-anthropy party presented by Rainforest Partnership. Austinites soaked up the sun on the deck and enjoyed free Flash Tattoos from the Illia Collection — the only multicolored collection from the brand. Tropical sips from local favorites including Austin Cocktails, Chameleon Cold-Brew and Austin Beerworks kept guests hydrated and happy. And snacks from World Peas, GoodPop and St. Philip Pizza and Bakery were crowd favorites.
STILL&SEA swimwear presented a fashion show, and attendees grooved to poolside playlists from DJ Fideo and DJ Chorizo Funk of Peligrosa. When guests left the pool, they were treated to mini manicures, massages and beachy braids from Wet Salon and Studio. Austin-based nonprofit Rainforest Partnership raised nearly $10,000 during the event. The proceeds will help support Rainforest Partnership’s bee keeping program in the Colibri Cloudforest community.
