Need plans for the first week of August? Now you have them.
The 10th person to email firstname.lastname@example.org with their name and contact information will receive two general admission passes to the Pay It Forward With Daniel Curtis Benefit on Aug. 3 at the AT&T Hotel and Conference Center.
The seventh annual event, which benefits the Lone Star Paralysis Foundation and Easter Seals of Central Texas, will be held to raise awareness and funds for those with spinal cord injuries. The event began after its namesake, Daniel Curtis, became paralyzed in a diving accident in May 2011. Ever since, his family and friends have teamed up with the local food and beverage industry to raise funds to help alleviate his high medical costs and help others with similar injuries.
The event will feature food from some of Central Texas’ best restaurants, including The Carillon, Barley Swine and Odd Duck, Café Blue, Copper Restaurant, Jack Allen’s Kitchen, Jason Dady Restaurant Group San Antonio, Mongers Market & Kitchen, Olive & June, Salt Traders, Salty Sow, Swift’s Attic, The Bonneville, The Noble Sandwich Co., The Restaurant at Treaty Oak, Uchi, and Vox Table, along with treats from Austin Cake Ball and Casa Brasil.
There will also be an open bar featuring beer, wine and specialty cocktails from Treaty Oak Distilling, Patrón Spirits, American Born Whiskey, and Glazers, all curated by The Tipsy Texan, David Alan.
There will also be a live auction during the event, as well as music from Rotel and the Hot Tomatoes, a band that primarily performs covers from the 1950s, ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s.
The event starts at 6 p.m. for VIP admission and 7 p.m. for general admission. VIP tickets are $125 per person and general admission tickets are $75 per person. Tickets can be purchased here.View full experience
