Toros y Tapas 2016

Please join the celebration:

Saturday, July 30, 2016 from 8pm to 11pm
at the home of Michael Rodriguez and Stephen Watkins
4000 Hyridge Drive, Austin 78759, 512-502-5194

In the spirit of Pamplona, white attire encourages, red scarves provided.

Suggested contribution $25, $50, $100 or more. Every dollar goes to the Paul Kirby Emergency Fund at AIDS Services of Austin which provides emergency cash assistance to people living with the challenges of HIV/AIDS when they face a financial crisis. Your dollars will help them with the most basic needs like rent, utilities, food, even medications.

Toros y Tapas is our way of celebrating the Running of the Bulls but instead of running for our lives down an alley dodging bulls in Spain, we will be running around the pool to a table laden with tapas and vino in Austin while listening to Latin ballads and dance music. And best of all while nibbling, sipping, and dancing, we will be sharing with friends the warmth of knowing that this party is making a difference in the lives of our neighbors with HIV/AIDS – offering a helping hand when they need it most. Over the years Octopus Club parties and you have raised over $2.3 million!

Hosts: Michael Rodriguez, Stephen Watkins, Mauricio Carranza, Charley Schumate, Jay Billig, Billy Brown, Lew Aldridge, Jim Lommori, y muchos otros.

If you are unable to join us, but would like to help, you can make a check payable to ASA – Paul Kirby Fund and mail c/o Lew Aldridge, 509 Oakland Ave, Austin 78703.
