Hey y'all, welcome to Good Party™! I'm excited to launch our new website and introduce Good Party ATX to the Austin community. I wanted to write a short note to let you know why I started Good Party, and what I hope it will become.
I’ve lived and worked in Austin for more than 10 years-- most recently in marketing and events at a local media company. I also volunteer at a few local nonprofits-- I am currently a foster for Austin Pets Alive! and on their marketing committee, a member of the Chula League advisory board, and a mentor through Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Texas. The Austin community and nonprofit landscape is something I’m vocal and actively passionate about.
What I love most about Austin is that this city gives a damn. Friends and strangers are always asking me how to get involved in Austin and the best ways to give back. They're often limited on time and money, so they think they can't contribute and make a difference in the community. That’s where Good Party comes in!
On any day of the week in Austin, you can attend an event, concert, happy hour (even a YAPPY hour) that gives back to local nonprofits. You could eat out almost every meal of the week and have a portion of that meal donated to help others. That many businesses give back in this town. You don't have to make a dramatic change to your schedule or budget to give; you just have to choose the right parties.
With the help of my badass friend and partner Kim Baze, we developed Good Party to curate Austin's events and experiences with a philanthropic twist for you. We’ll highlight the fun parties that benefit nonprofits each week and make it easy to spend your dollars at businesses that give back. We'll also host a few of our own parties too, profile Austin do-gooders, and share easy ways to get involved with community organizations. We hope you'll stick around and enjoy giving back!
