PeopleFund and Center61 are getting in on the SXSW action this year by throwing a party at our place. Join us for free beer from Live Oak Brewing Co., free margaritas from Sabor Azul Margaritas, free gift cards from La Madeline and a full day of great bands.
With the help of SnoBall, a social media-based giving platform, we're using our concert showcase not only to publicize the small businesses and nonprofits doing good work in the Austin community, but also to raise money for one of our newer initiatives, the Junior Entrepreneurship Track Program*.
Go to www.snoball.com now to set up an account and then join or create a Snoball the day of the event to support JET!

12:00-12:30-Quenby and the WOW Band (Austin)
