The evening will feature complimentary drinks, tapas, live music, a silent auction, and, of course, the opportunity to tour the beautiful grounds of the Umlauf Sculpture Garden, which have been reserved especially for the occasion.

Ticket and auction proceeds benefit the Austin Bar Foundation & Austin LGBT Bar Association law student scholarship program.  In 2015, the Foundation and Association launched a scholarship program for students at Texas law schools who have demonstrated commitment or contribution to the LGBT community or LGBT legal issues.  The program’s first, two $5,000 scholarships were awarded in 2016 to Anya Morgan, University of Texas School of Law; and Luis Medina, St. Mary’s University School of Law.  To learn more about the program and its first recipients, visit
