There are numerous ways to spend Inauguration Day. Cocktails seem to be a running theme. And since the election I have been humbled by the activism and acts of kindness I’ve witnessed in our community. So on Friday, January 20th, Inauguration Day, I would like to invite you to celebrate this positive response to uncertainty by supporting Caritas, a local non-profit organization that, for more than fifty years, has been responding to crisis with compassion, cultivated resources, and opportunities for a better life. Yes, there will be complimentary cocktails. And there is a suggested $10 donation that can be made on Eventbrite or at the door. There will also be an enticing raffle, with items including art, restaurant gift certificates, hotel stays and more… AND you’ll get to spend an evening with civic minded, really freakin’ nice Austinites for whom the perfect evening entails cocktails and kindness.
For more information about Caritas and all the important work that they do for Austin’s homeless population, our local veterans and refugees, go to caritasofaustin.org.
