Since 2016, Austin Entertains has served as the spring fundraising event for The Junior League of Austin (JLA). This unique culinary event features female chefs, bartenders, spirit purveyors, and industry leaders from the Austin area’s most recognized and awarded restaurants, bars, breweries, wineries, and distilleries. At the event, the JLA is also proud to award two Austin Entertains Culinary Fellowship prizes to participating applicants to help the winners develop and further their careers in the culinary field. We’ve awarded more than $52,500 to local chefs since 2020.

Austin Entertains is also proud to spotlight one of JLA’s signature programs, Food In Tummies (FIT), which combats food insecurity in the Austin area. Learn more about FIT here.
