Don’t miss your chance to experience Rainforest Partnership’s 2019 Amazon in Austin fundraising gala! Join us for a magical evening and let us bring the rainforest to you through imagery, stories, and the sounds of nature as we take over the Getaway Motor Club.
Tune in to Tina Rodriguez’s healing vibrations as you enter or head to our Rainforest Dome and surround yourself with sights and sounds from the Amazon rainforest.
Cacao elixirs will be served by 3rd Eye Tonic and we will have an array of food, wine, beer, and cocktails for your enjoyment.
Performances include Oliver Rajamani playing his unique Flamenco India sounds and Maracuta TX—the best of Brazilian rhythms to get you movin’ and groovin’.
Go home with a special prize from our live auction or take a picture in our photo booth to mark this unforgettable event!
City of Austin Mayor, Steve Adler, will speak at the gala about the importance and role of tropical rainforests in addressing climate change. May 9-15, 2019 will be proclaimed by the City of Austin as Rainforest Partnership’s Amazon in Austin Week.
Learn about Rainforest Partnership’s work to protect and restore the Amazon rainforest on this special night. This event supports our community-based conservation projects in Peru and Ecuador that enable indigenous communities to preserve their forest.
