Full List of 2017 Sponsors



This long-standing Austin tradition (which benefits HAAM), unofficially kicks off the annual SXSW Music Festival and is regarded by the Austin music scene as THE party to be at. Held in the intimate backyard of GSD&M, guests enjoy exclusive access to performances by the legendary Ray Benson and Asleep at the Wheel plus his slew of friends, which has included artists such as Randy Rogers, Wade Bowen, Charlie Sexton, Carolyn Wonderland, The Avett Brothers just to name a few. Ray has also invited a few up and comers to share the stage with him over the year... none other than the King of Country, George Strait and a certain Red Headed Stranger, Willie Nelson.



Tickets will go on sale in January. Sponsorships and tables are still available. For more information, email Rikki Hardy at rikki@myhaam.org or click to view Ray Benson's 67th Birthday Bash Sponsorship Opportunities.
