End Time: Wednesday, July 17 at 1:00pm
Where: Blanton Museum, 200 E Martin Luther King Jr Blvd, Austin

Description

One of the great, and under-appreciated, benefits of working at UT Austin is that we have free access to a wealth of world-class resources right here on campus. However, we too rarely take advantage of them. It is time to fix that problem!

Please join us on Wednesday, July 17 from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM for a guided overview tour of the Blanton Museum. This tour is free to current UT staff and Blanton members; admission for others is $9 for adults, $7 for seniors (65+). It's been arranged for benefit of the IT@UT community by members of the board of the Cathy Lester IT Excellence Memorial Award.

Meet at the Visitor Services Desk at 11:30 AM to join the group. Parking for those coming from off-campus is available in the Brazos Garage.

Maps and Directions

The museum café is open until 2 PM for those who want to have a bite after the tour.

Make room in your day to appreciate the treasures that surround us. An Evite has been sent with a calendar invitation for your convenience. Open it and click Save to add it to your calendar.

Start Time: Friday, July 23 at 5:00pm
End Time: Friday, July 23 at 9:00pm
Where: 6546 Valleyside Road, Austin

Description

Join your UT friends on Friday, July 23 for a post-work get together at the clubhouse in Julie and Karl Martinez' condo community (located in the Far West area on Valleyside Road).

We'll provide a keg, wine, soft drinks, sausage wraps, hot dogs & fixings, and light snacks. There's a kitchen and a grill if you want to fix something more substantial to eat. If you love to cook or are interested in bringing a dessert or snack to share, go ahead!

Family and friends are definitely invited - and be sure to bring a bathing suit and a towel if you want to cool off on a hot summer's evening (no lifeguard though). This event will take place rain or shine!

While this event is not a fund-raiser, donations to offset food and drink costs will be accepted in the "Change Management" box. All proceeds of the raffle will benefit the Cathy Lester Memorial IT Excellence fund.

Directions: North on Mopac to Far West Blvd. Go west on Far West to Wood Hollow Drive. Turn left on Wood Hollow Drive to North Hills Drive. Turn left on North Hills Drive to Valleyside Road. Turn right on Valleyside Road. The club house is located on Valleyside Road between Hart Lane and North Hills Drive. There is parking available in a small parking lot next to the club house or anywhere on the street.
