Host Appeal Form

The Octopus Club is presenting its now infamous art auction party, benefiting the Paul Kirby Emergency Fund of AIDS Services of Austin. There will be complementary cocktails, wine, beer, erotic desserts, live entertainment, and of course the main event is the silent auction of hundreds of works of erotic art. Last year ArtErotica raised more than $70,000! To date the Octopus Club has raised about $2.5 million for the Paul Kirby Fund.

An event like this can’t happen without Sponsors/Hosts.

Hosts and hostesses talk it up and encourage friends, family and coworkers to attend. Your donation covers the costs of putting on a fundraiser like this. Like all Octopus Club events, every penny from ticket sales and the silent auction goes directly to people with HIV/AIDS when they are in an emergency situation.
