June 30, 2017 - Event Recap
Enjoy the bright smiles of Impact Austin’s 2017 Grant Winners and the many Impact Austin members who gathered at City Hall on June 14th to cheer them on!
Austin’s Mayor Steve Adler and City Council Member Alison Alter (also an Impact Austin member!) welcomed us to the chambers with wit and warmth.
