Austinites Support Local Farmers at the Farmgrass Fundraiser VIP Gala

On Friday evening, farmers, foodies and community leaders alike gathered at The Austonian to enjoy cocktails, farm-to-table cuisine and a bluegrass concert with The Lost Pines in support of Farmgrass, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to helping farmers in the greater Austin area with medical emergencies that prevent them from maintaining their farms and livelihoods.

The night’s auction items included a 7-night stay in Aruba at Villa Bougainvillea, a 2-night stay at Montesino Farm Studios in Wimberley, TX, an acoustic guitar signed by Robert Earl Keen, a private house concert by The Lost Pines and a Red Fan favorite: a glass of water which sold for $200.

The Farmgrass Fundraiser VIP Gala raised over $10,000 and was the perfect sneak peek of Farmgrass Fest at the Simmons Family Farm on May 3. If you missed out on the gala, Farmgrass Fest will be the perfect event to get to support your local farmers and to jam out to some bluegrass. Don’t forget to mark your calendars and buy your tickets at www.farmgrassfest.com/tickets.
