A Very Special Event Benefitting the Hungry Families of Austin

Hi all,
If you haven't seen it yet, please join us on Halloween Night, October 31st, for an amazing Masquerade Ball benefitting Fill Up America - Austin Chapter.
We are hosting a fun event, billed as Austin's biggest Sober Halloween Party, and all proceeds go towards expanding our existing Fill Up America Program here in Austin.  Currently, we are making and giving away 200+ sandwiches (sometimes paired with water, or fruit snacks) to the homeless in downtown Austin.
In 2014, we want to more closely mimic the Fill Up America Program that exists in San Francisco.  Each week, the Food Bank delivers pallets of food, and volunteers portion it out into over 200 bags of groceries.  Then they drive the bags to two different distribution points and hand the bags out to hungry families.  It's our goal to do something similar here in Austin twice a month starting soon after the first of the year.
The organization, both here, and in San Francisco and other cities, is entirely volunteer run.  All of the money collected goes to either buying food to give away, or to pay for the small overhead to keep the non-profit running.
Even if you can't attend, please take a moment and purchase a ticket to our party, and support the expansion of this program at fillupamericatx.eventbrite.com
Thanks,
Keith
