Animal Lovers of Austin, Inc., present Barkitecture, 2012. On November 10 from 12-4 pm in the spectacular 2ND Street District, Barkitecture will raise funds via silent auction of unique, one of a kind doghouses created by Austin’s best architects, designers, and builders. Proceeds will benefit local area animal rescue groups.
Barkitecture is now accepting applications through their website, www.austinbarkitecture.com, from builders, designers, and architects who would like to be part of the event. In 2011, we had over 20 homes submitted and raised over $20,000.
Barkitecture is hosting a special preview party at the W Hotel on November 8 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Guests will be able to enjoy a specialty cocktail, gourmet snacks, and get a sneak peek of a few of the custom designed doghouses as well as meet the designers. Tickets are $25 each and are available on the website, www.austinbarkitecture.com.
Additionally, Barkitecture is pleased to announce several exciting updates about this year’s event.
