7Co | 1501 E. 7th Street | 7-10PM | “Austin-Casual” Cocktail Attire
Named after film legend and animal activist Bette Davis’ annual soiree in the 1930s-40s to raise funds for shelter pets, Austin Pets Alive!’s Tailwaggers Non-Gala │Neo-Gala will be an elegantly casual affair. This perfectly-Austin cocktail party will combine fine vegan bites, pets from APA!, friends from near and far, plus:
CELEBRITY MIXOLOGISTS Featuring Austin’s finest, each crafting their own signature vegan cocktail, from Small Victory, Perla’s, Maudie’s Tex-Mex, and a celebrity Brewmaster from Celis Brewery, plus experts behind the brands like Boiler Nine Bar + Grill, Second Bar + Kitchen, June’s All Day, and more!
CURATED SILENT AUCTION Original pieces and packages by local artists, designers, and favorite celebrities. Featuring items from Keith Kreeger, Uchi, Fairmont Austin and BarkBox, as well as one of a kind pieces created by Mike “Truth” Johnston, Rachael Ray and more!
And this year we’ve gone digital! The bidding system for the auction is conducted entirely on Handbid, which provides both online and/or mobile app opportunities to place bids, receive notifications if you’ve been outbid, and get reminders before bidding closes. We highly encourage our attendees to download the Handbid app in preparation for the event – as a ticket purchaser, you’ve actually already registered on Handbid! It’s as simple as going to the App Store on your mobile device, downloading the “Handbid” app, and searching for the “Tailwaggers 2018” auction.
LIVE MUSIC Dance the night away with Austin’s own Rent Party and DJ Mahealani. Rent Party’s unique collection of musicians will be performing fresh blends of hot jazz and vintage swing, while DJ Mahealani will keep you on your feet all night with her mix of new and old-soul jams, old school hip-hop, and jazz!
