July 21, 2011 - PRLog -- Two Austin women, Michele Utt of MK Events and Cathy of, are partnering to throw The Bachelorette (ABC) Season Finale Watch Party which will also serve as a fundraiser for Autism Speaks. Autism is especially near to Cathy’s heart as her oldest son was diagnosed with autism at the age of three. Today he’s thriving thanks to speech therapy, occupational therapy, behavioral therapy and the help of loving teachers and family members.  

“MK Events and have combined creativity & philanthropy to offer a unique & rewarding experience to those who have an interest in supporting the autism community,” says Traci Whitney, Manager of Greater Austin Walk Now for Autism Speaks. “We applaud their efforts, and are looking forward to the great success of their Bachelorette Season Finale Watch Party.  It is third-party events such as these that raise the funds that can truly make a difference in the lives of those struggling with autism spectrum disorders.”

The Bachelorette Watch Party, the brainchild of Michele, an event planner known for uniting fun and philanthropy, is taking place at a gorgeous estate in Lakeway on 170 acres, complete with a pool and a view overlooking the Texas Hill County.  Title sponsors for the event include Baldwin Beauty School, Premier Data Com and Warren Kull with Party attendees will enjoy beautiful swag bags valued at $700 in products and services, as well as a variety of treats from event sponsors  

Flowers by Nancy will fill the space with beautiful bouquets of red roses, matching the ambiance with the question of the night... who will get the final rose?  To accentuate the luxuries of the night event more, Chef Paul Peterson, who was featured on TLC's BBQ Pitmasters, and currently the executive chef at Austin's Tex-Mex Restaurant, Vivo, will be firing up the kitchen, giving all the ladies a chance to taste the food straight from an authentic "kitchen rockstar."  The party will also feature complimentary appetizers by Mandola's, wine by Flat Creek Winery, cocktails courtesy of Treaty Oak Rum and Graham's Texas Tea, and dessert a la Michelle's Patisserie.

Swag bags are sponsored by Bettysport, Oak Haven Massage, BASE Personal Training, Kendra Scott Jewelry, Shandi Nichelle Co., Vitamin Water, Don Rogers Photography, Dermalogica, Dream Water, 360 Tans, Creative People Marketing & Design, and Hill Country Galleria.

The Greater Austin Walk Now for Autism Speaks will be held on September 24th at the Dell Diamond and Michele and Cathy invite all who participate in this fundraising event to join them.  They will walk in an effort to build a better future for families like Cathy’s who live with the challenges of autism every day and to put an end to autism for generations to come.
