Helping Local Chefs While Supporting JLA

The Austin community is fortunate to have such a vibrant culinary scene, and the primary goal of Austin Entertains is to elevate and celebrate the key female talent that fuels this industry. Given the impact of COVID-19 on the hospitality industry, we are directly supporting our restaurant partners through a unique to-go culinary experience. 

In collaboration with these restaurants, all proceeds from Austin Entertains will provide critical funding for the signature programs of The Junior League of Austin, such as Coats for Kids, KICS – Kids in Cool Shoes, and FIT – Food In Tummies.
