Celebrate Rainwater + Support the UMLAUF with Ellis and Richard's Rainwater

November 21st | 6:00 - 8:00 pm

We are so excited to have the UMLAUF Sculpture Garden & Museum, Ellis of Austin, Richards Rainwater, and Austin Parks Foundation coming together at Ellis for an evening to benefit the UMLAUF's Water Conservation initiatives!

We will have specially curated cocktails, Richard's Rainwater, a photo booth, live music, and more!

Support the UMLAUF’s first water conservation initiative, a 15,000 Rain Water Collection tank.


This collection tank would help conserve water by creating the ability to use rainwater throughout our gardens:


1. UMLAUF uses an average of 14,006 Gallons of Water per month of City of Austin water through the ponds, streams, and waterfall in the gardens.

2. A rainwater collection tank would save UMLAUF over $9,000 annually and the City of Austin over 168,000 gallons of water annually.


Austin Parks Foundation awarded the UMLAUF a $28,500 matching grant for the project so we are currently raising the matching funds.


We will recognize our Sponsors and Partners of this environmentally conscious initiative in print materials, on our website, in e-newsletters and social media posts that reach over 20,000 subscribers, and at the site of the rainwater tower itself which is visited by over 50,000 people annually.


Sponsorship levels include: $28,500 -- $15,000 -- $10,000 -- $7,500 -- $5,000 - $2,500
