Perez Hilton's One Night In… Austin: Fall Out Boy's Stunning Surprise Appearance, Over $53K Raised For Charities!
For the sixth straight year, we took our talented friends to Austin and blew everyone's minds with SXSW's most ass-kicking event!
Words haven't been invented to accurately describe the awesomeness of Sunday's One Night In… Austin partAAy, but we will try and paint a picture of the gloriousness anyway!!
There was fabulous music and delicious drinks! Our favorite celebz mingled with our perezilicous fans!
Fall Out Boy surprised the crap out of everyone by playing a fabulous set!
And, best of all, we raised over $53,000 for two of our fantastic charities!!!
In addition to showcasing the most anticipated performances at SXSW, our event successfully raised $53,000 for VH1 Save The Music Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to restoring instrumental music education in America's public schools and GLSEN, the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network, a non-profit organization dedicated to ensuring safe schools for all and creating a world in which every child learns to respect and accept all people, regardless of sexual orientation!
We're proud to have collected so much cash for such great causes, but we certainly couldn't have done it alone!
We couldn't have thrown such an amazing party and raised so much money without our friends at BMF Media, who have helped us every year since the first back in 2008! And thank you thank you to all of the brands that helped cover all the costs! Thank you to VH1; Strongbow; Tito's; Vita Coco; TY KU Premium Sake & Spirits and Tic Tac®!!
And, of course, thank you to all the AMAZING artists and everyone at their labels and teams that helped get them to our "Night"! We love you Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Lissie, Paloma Faith, Stooshe, Charli XCX, Brooke Candy, Angel Haze, Capital Cities, Wynter Gordon, Kerli and Foxes.
We can't wait to do it again next year!
