Wednesday, February 14th — we're spreading the <3 this Valentine's Day at Cheer Up Charlies with Love Your Charities — a benefit for our local non-profits including Out Youth, American Gateways, The SIMS Foundation and Girls Rock Austin who will be on site for the evening with resources and volunteers. We encourage you to bring some dollars as donations, ask questions and bring out loved ones! Music to follow with sets from TEENAGE CAVEGIRL, Barbarian and Space Heat!
Out Youth serves the Central Texas LGBTQ+ youth and their allies with programs and services to promote their physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and social well being to safely explore and affirm their identities.
American Gateways champions the dignity and human rights of refugees and immigrant survivors of persecution, torture, conflict, and human trafficking through exceptional immigration legal services at no or low cost, education, and advocacy.
The SIMS Foundation
The SIMS Foundation was founded in 1995 by the friends and family of Sims Ellison, a young Austin musician who lost his long battle with depression. The SIMS mission is the same after 21 years: to provide affordable counseling, psychiatric, and addiction recovery services, tailored specifically to the needs of Austin musicians and their families.
Girls Rock Austin
GRA believes in the transformative and revolutionary power of using creative expression as a means of social change. By providing a positive, supportive environment that offers music instruction, workshops and performances, the camp creates leadership opportunities, cultivates a supportive community of peers and mentors, and encourages social change and the development of life skills.
