ILEA Austin brings the party vibes to you with our Virtual Dance Party in lieu of our regularly scheduled April Happy Hour! We miss everyone so much, and we think it’s time for us to join together in true ILEA fashion (virtually) while we jam out to the tunes of some of our favorite DJ’s.
Our Non-Profit of the quarter, Austin Pet's Alive, will be there so please bring donations. Their wish list can be viewed here - https://smile.amazon.com/gp/ch/list/74-2893360/ref=smi_cl_ls_llol_lol.
