URBANITY - September 20th, 2015  
The Octopus Club introduces a brand new party to raise money for the Paul Kirby Fund at AIDS Services of Austin: URBANITY, Downtown Cocktails for a Cause!
On Sunday September 20th, from 3 to 5 p.m. hosts all over Downtown will invite their friends to their condos and apartments for cocktails and socializing and ask them to make a contribution to the Paul Kirby Fund. Then all the guests from all the parties will head over to Highland Lounge from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. to meet all the guests from all the parties, listen to some live music, and clink a champagne toast to the spirit of giving and the success of the event.
We are inviting you to be one of the inaugural hosts!  To be a host, all you do is invite friends and neighbors to your Downtown home for cocktails. Your party can be eight people in your one bedroom or fifty people in your building’s party room. You decide who to invite and what to serve. The Octopus Club provides you with an invitation that you can email or mail to your guests, a bar kit – vodka, mixers, beer, and wine, and a thank you sign for your donation jar that thanks your guests for their contribution of $20, $50, $100 or MORE to the AIDS Emergency Assistance Fund.

For more information contact Dylan Paschal, 512‐632‐7941 dylpasc@gmail.com, or Hunter Hagemann, 512‐462‐1882 hagemann.hunter@gmail.com, the URBANITY CoChairs or Matt Easterling, rmeasterling@hotmail.com, our Downtowner Celebrity Host.
Please confirm by September 1!

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.
