Giving new meaning to the phrase “pet cause,” TRIO this month launches a new fundraising campaign benefiting three of Austin’s most prominent animal welfare organizations.
Dubbed TRIO for Paws, the summer promotion combines a lawn party and silent auction with an ongoing prix fixe menu in an effort to raise much-needed funds for the Austin Humane Society, Austin Pets Alive! and Emancipet.
The fun kicks off Thursday, June 20 at 5:30 pm with a party on the lawn featuring music by DJ Sommelier Mark Sayre and a silent auction comprised of items ranging from VIP Book of Morman tickets at Texas Performing Arts and an intimate dinner for four inside the TRIO kitchen to luxurious stays at Four Seasons resorts in Maui and Costa Rica, among others.
While browsing and bidding, guests will also enjoy a spread of TRIO appetizers as well as a signature Yappy Hour cocktail created exclusively for the event.
Tickets may be purchased online in advance for $30 or at the door for $35 each. A limited number of $100 tickets will also be available and include a gift bag filled with valuable goodies such as a $50 Four Seasons gift certificate, spa products and doggie treats.
Those unable to attend the June 20 event can still support the cause through August 29, 2013 simply by ordering a special Trio for Paws dinner menu in the restaurant. The three-course prix fixe menu features a choice of appetizer, entree and dessert – along with two shareable sides – for $39 per person, providing incredible value for diners. Best of all, $1 from each menu sold will be donated to the overall fundraising total.
