Rubber Duck

The Rubber Duck party began in 2005 with a group of friends who wanted to have a party to raise funds for the Octopus Club. 2014 marks the 10th anniversary of this party that has become an annual Octopus Club event. 100% of all donations by party attendees are given to the AIDS Services of Austin – Paul Kirby Emergency Fund. 100% of the cost to underwrite the Rubber Duck party is donated by the Hosts. Last year, the party raised $16,434.58.




Over 25 years of "fun-raising"!  Your octopus club parties have raised over $2 Million !  

You can help put us over the $2 million dollar mark by joining in one of our existing parties are creating your own. 
Every dollar will go to the paul kirby evergency assistance fund to help our neighbors living with hiv/aids.

We make sure that when times are toughest, they have a place of last resort to turn for help.

How have these dollars helped? In 2012, the Paul Kirby Emergency Fund has helped hundreds of ASA clients, who have received:

  • Emergency Food Assistance
  • Housing Assistance
  • Medical Care and Eye Care
  • Medications
  • Insurance Assistance
  • Transportation Assistance

The Octopus Club couldn't do it without you

Anyone can have an Octopus Club party- ANYONE! Whether you plan to have 2 people attend or 200, any dollar raised for the Paul Kirby Emergency Fund is much appreciated. Almost all of the money in the Emergency Assistance Fund comes from Octopus Club parties and every year the Paul Kirby Emergency Fund is emptied. The simple thing to remember is this: Hosts and Corporate Sponsors must cover all party expenses, so that EVERY cent spent by guests attending your party contributes directly to the Paul Kirby Emergency Fund.

So, get some friends together and set up a roadside lemonade stand or rent out the Erwin Center and hire the Rolling Stones to perform. Either way, your party will directly help someone living near you with HIV and AIDS in need of a prescription, eye glasses, rent utilities or food - basic living needs.
