Austin Area Foundation to hold upcoming Valentine’s Day evening gala

The Austin Area Foundation is hosting “For The Love Of Austin” gala evening dinner on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, at the Holiday Inn in Austin.

This first of what the board is aiming to be an annual event starts off with a social time from 5:30-6:15 p.m., followed by a five-course dinner. Live music provided by Funny Valentines and Morgan & Friends, a door prize and silent auction and a 50/50 drawing will highlight the evening.

The unique door prize will provide $1,000 for the lucky winner to gift to an Austin Area non-profit of their choice. If you have had the dream of being able to give a significant donation to your favorite Austin charity, this is the door prize for you.
