For the past two years, we have been working tirelessly on Amplify Austin, what we expect to be an unforgettable day for our beautiful city.
The fact is, Austin needs this. With Austin listed as the fastest growing city in the U.S., our community needs to be growing with it. We need to eliminate poverty and hunger while preserving our culture, including everything from art and music to parks and nature.
Our sponsors appreciate what we are doing. And, boy, do we appreciate them too!
Maxwell Locke & Ritter, one of our 48 Bass Boosters, will be giving $1,000 to the nonprofit who raises the most dollars from 2pm to 3pm on March 5. The largest locally owned and managed accounting firm in Greater Austin, Maxwell Locke & Ritter helps dynamic companies and people achieve their dreams. Individually and collectively, their staff continues to make a huge difference in the community and is proudly involved in over 160 different organizations, which can be seen here.
Breed & Co. has been an Austin institution for the past 40 years. Originally a small hardware store adjacent to the University of Texas, Breed & Co. now has two locations that provide not only hardware products, but some of the finest tabletop, housewares, garden and season décor, and gourmet food in the area. Aside from giving back to the community by joining in on Amplify Austin as a Bass Booster (most dollars donated from 9am-10am March 5), Breed & Co. has been involved with several other philanthropies, most recently Austin Food Blogger’s ‘Cupcakes & Cocktails’ event that benefited Bake A Wish.
For the past fifteen years, Johnston Made To Measure has been providing Austin’s best-dressed men with the finest apparel from around the world. Along with their apparel selection, Johnston Made To Measure provides first-class service. Their professional efforts have carried into their community involvement, most recently as a donor in the Austin Bar Foundation Gala as well as with Imaginarium In-Kind with Austin Children’s Museum. Johnston Made To Measure will be amplifying the nonprofit who raises the most dollars during 6pm-7pm March 5.
Another Austin-owned business looking to continue giving back to the community by joining Amplify Austin is Fiat of Austin, who signed on for two $1,000 Bass Booster sponsors (nonprofit who raises most dollars AND nonprofit who raises most donors from 7am-8am March 5). Fiat of Austin holds ten core values that we see not only in their business but their community-involvement. From pursuing growth and learning to embracing and driving change, we are so thankful to have a company such as Fiat of Austin join Amplify Austin Day. It is just the latest community endeavor for the company, whose previous involvement includes sponsoring HAAM’s 2nd Annual Holiday HAAm Jam benefit album, The Fader Fort, and Stilleto Stampede.
