The Octopus Club‘s INK presented its second annual Spring Brunch this past weekend in South Austin at the Hummingbird House, complete with a custom menu of local, organic brunch goodies provided by local Executive Chef Zack Teegardin of Perry’s Steakhouse and his sidekick, The Austin Optimist, Allie Teegardin, a Bloody Mary bar, bottomless mimosas, and all the fair trade, organic coffee you could drink.
INK is a spinoff of the Octopus Club, a grassroots all-volunteer organization dedicated to raising funds for and awareness of the Paul Kirby Emergency Fund at AIDS Services of Austin through annual events and parties. The Octopus Club has raised more than $2 million for the fund. INK is excited to continue the Octopus Club’s strong tradition of fundraising by introducing the fund to Austin’s next generation of leaders and philanthropists.
INK’s mission is to educate Austin’s diverse population of young people about the Paul Kirby Emergency Fund at AIDS Services of Austin, provide young people with an economically viable way to contribute to the Fund, and to promote safe sex.
