PRLog - May 7, 2012 - AUSTIN, Texas -- MKV Productions, a local Events, PR, and Marketing company, created STRUT 512 for Austinites to celebrate Austin's culture and give back to the community. 512 is not just an area code anymore, it's a recognized DAY to celebrate Austin. May 12th (5-12) has been officially proclaimed as "Austin's STRUT 512 Day" by Mayor Lee Leffingwell, giving "512" a whole new meaning.
STRUT 512 is made possible with sponsors like Dolce Blu, TaskRabbit, 360 Valet, The Austin City Ballet, Premiere Booth, Arthouse Floral, and Live Social Appeal. A percentage of the proceeds benefit CapCityKids, a non-profit organization that develops innovative programs and provides direct resources to help homeless students stay in school. CapCityKids founder, Jim Cannon, quotes, "We are extremely grateful to MKV Productions for choosing CapCityKids as the beneficiary for STRUT 512. We can not wait for the event and look forward to providing these children with a chance to beat the odds and obtain a quality education."
STRUT 512 attracts foodies, fashionistas, local movers and shakers and philanthropic elite eager to enjoy a much anticipated night of stress-free mingling, entertainment and palat-pleasing food and beverages from Austin's local talent. The evening begins promptly at 8:00 pm with free parking courtesy of 360 Valet. Guests will enjoy food & drinks, a silent auction, interactive live art, surprise performances, and the highly anticipated fashion show, all with the underlying goal of raising funds for CapCityKids.
Tickets can be purchased for $100 at www.strut512.com or $125 at the door.
