The teams behind A Night For Austin stand firmly against all forms of racism and hate, and wish to emphasize their full acknowledgment and sincere heartbreak over the current upheaval in our country, and across the world. Cities and towns across our country have suffered devastating financial losses due to the global pandemic, Austin being one of many. With the events of the past week weighing heavy on our hearts, we feel compelled as a music community to continue to help and support those in need and bring people together in an effort to rebuild.
Several weeks ago, Paul Simon, Edie Brickell, Willie and Annie Nelson joined efforts to assemble an event focused on supporting Austin, Texas as a whole. A Night For Austin is a music benefit supporting the Austin Community Foundation fund, which is focused on Austin’s businesses and individuals in need of necessary aid.
100% of the proceeds from the program will go toward the fund’s beneficiaries:
Austin Community Foundation – https://www.austincf.org
Red River Cultural District – https://redriverculturaldistrict.org
Six Square Creatives Restoration Project – https://www.sixsquare.org
Health Alliance For Austin Musicians – https://myhaam.org
Central Texas Food Bank – https://www.centraltexasfoodbank.org
Southern Smoke Foundation – https://southernsmoke.org
PeopleFund – https://peoplefund.org
