Texas attorney Thomas J. Henry will launch “Austin Elevates,” a community art and music experience on November 8-9 in Austin.
The event will benefit local nonprofit organizations the SAFE Alliance, Superhero Kids, and St. David’s Foundation Community Fund.
“Austin continues to be one of our nation’s most popular destinations to experience the best in art and music,” Henry said in a news release. “With this event, I hope to foster more unique talent in order to further elevate the Austin community and support the amazing nonprofits making a cultural difference every day.”
The festivities begin with an unveiling of a new mural dedicated to Texas by contemporary street artist Alec Monopoly from 7 to 10 p.m. on November 8 at Parlor and Yard.
On November 9, a special benefit concert featuring performances by Kygo and Daddy Yankee will be held at the Austin360 Amphitheater at the Circuit of The Americas.
Free tickets for the public to the art dedication and the concert are sold out, but ticket packages at various price points for the concert are still available. All donated proceeds from the event will support the participating nonprofit organizations. For more information, go to austinelevates.com.
