Giant Octopus

There is a group of folks who raise money for Aids Services Austin. They call themselves the Octopus Club. They throw parties where everything is donated or underwritten and give all the money to a fund called the Paul Kirby Fund. They help people fighting HIV/AIDS to overcome temporary financial obstacles like buying drugs or food or paying rent or getting transportation to appointments. This fab balloon octopus decorated Brazos Hall for a big annual OctoTea event. At this party the group topped two million dollars of donation since its inception. Doing good while having fun!
