Live Love Labs - Saturday, September 24, 2011

The date is saved.  There is no Texas football game. It's Saturday night. Time to bust out your glad rags and get on over to the Heart of Texas Lab Rescue "Live, Love, Labs" silent auction.  River Place Country Club sets the stage for this amazing night of fun and festivity.  The party begins this Saturday night, September 24 from 7pm - 10pm at 4207 River Place Blvd., Austin, TX 78730.

If you haven't heard about this event by now, then most likely you've been suffering from a summer heat stroke.  We are stoked and ready.  We've got light snacks provided by the fine folks of River Place and sweet treats from Sweetish Hill Bakery.  There will be a large variety of wines to wet your whistle as well.  In addition, a cash bar, iced tea and water will be provided for those preferring other beverage choices.

I suppose you might be wondering about the amazing items that we have available for auction.  How about two three day passes to the 2012 ACL festival?  Tickets to the Texas/OU football game sound like fun?  What about Texas vs. Kansas?  Are you a Joan Rivers fan?  Go see her live at the Paramount Theatre.  

Maybe you are in need of a little vacation?  How about a two night stay at Decker Creek Bed & Biscuit and Breakfast - a B&B where your pet is welcome close to home.  Or how about a couple of nights at the Red Corral Ranch B&B in Wimberley, TX?  Looking for a destination a little further from home?  How does a 4 day/3 night stay in Pagosa Springs, CO sound to you?  Tickets to Disneyland in California? Sea World in San Antionio?  

Is a trip to a spa more up your alley?  Lake Austin Spa and Resort will pamper you with their "Half Day Away" packge.  Don't forget that your pooches need pampering too.  How about a massage from Christina at Skillful Paws or a beauty treatment from Midtown Groom & Board.

Are you a central Texas foodie?  Is a good meal cooked by somebody else your idea of the perfect date.  We've got you covered here as well.  Gift certificates to Uchi/Uchiko, Eddie V's, Fonda San Miguel and Fogo de Chao to name a few.  We've got some uniquely Austin activities on the auction block as well.  How about a private sunset bat cruise for you and six guests on beautiful Lady Bird Lake, tickets on the Austin Steam Train, or Austin Toros tickets. Cycle away your blues with a pubcrawl on a Dutch bicycle or a Hill Country wine tasting.

And if all the above wasn't enough, we've got some great raffle items too.    How about a Garmin GPS system with lifetime updates, Ruth Chris Steak House $100 Gift Card, and a Vivitar camera?
