Last month the Austin planetarium hosted our very first fund raising event, and I am happy to report that it was a huge success. Of course we all worked very hard to ensure this, but it is always a big relief when afterwards you can say: a job well done!
We had over fifty guests, and the venue, the back patio at the Belmont, turned out to be perfect as well. We raised over $60,000 and we received many compliments from the guests about the party. We especially would like to thank Blue Note Bakery for creating the incredible desserts and Teresa Harper Photography for the event photography.
We are already organizing our next event: HAM's night, scheduled for January 31, but I will blog about that in the near future, because that one definitely deserves its own post!
