AUSTIN, Texas - Normally this time of year Siete Foods would be planning a large celebration of culture, food, and family but of course, at this time such an in-person gathering is not possible. So the company is collaborating with the restaurant LORO for a virtual at-home event instead.
"Juntos at Home: Austin Amor" will feature virtual performances from local artists and the option to purchase a cook-at-home meal box. The companies are also making donations to two local non-profits, HAMM and Central Texas Food Bank.
Siete is making the donation to HAAM, the organization providing healthcare for Austin musicians, and LORO is donating to the Central Texas Food Bank.
The show will be on Tuesday, May 5 at begin at 7 p.m. Anyone can tune in and no purchase or RSVP is required. Angelica Rahe, The Tiarra Girls, and Sam Houston are expected to perform. You can watch on the Siete Foods YouTube page.
