This year's Downtown Living Tour will give all attendees an opportunity to stroll through residences and model units showcasing upcoming developments, enjoy special offers from Second Street retailers and happy hours (5 - 7 pm) following the tour at participating downtown bars and restaurants. Additionally, VIP ticket holders will finish out the day with music, food, and drinks at the new MACC from 6:30 - 9 pm. The Downtown Living Tour attracts over 1,000 participants each year and generates over $15,000 for DANA sponsored activities and charities.
"What better way to introduce the Mexican-American Cultural Center to Austin than to have 'neighbors' be among the first to visit?" said Amparo Garcia-Crow, MACC Executive Director. "We're pleased to be located downtown, among so many other cultural sites, and we look forward to a long and happy relationship with our downtown neighbors -- and, of course, all of Austin and Central Texas."
"While the tour primarily promotes living opportunities, it also highlights retail and entertainment options, as well as transportation, non-profit, and other downtown services," says Rob McDaniel. McDaniel is on DANA's steering committee and is coordinating this year's tour. "On a typical day, a downtown resident can go to work, shop, relax in the park, and go out to dinner, all without getting in a car."
Tickets are available through DANA's web site. Prices range from $15 for DANA members to $40 for non-members who also attend the VIP party. The Austin Parks Foundation will receive a portion of the proceeds from this year’s tour.
The tour's title sponsor this year is Coldwell Banker United, REALTORS.
DANA's mission is to improve the quality of life for those who live, work and play downtown. DANA influences decisions that affect downtown, educates and listens to residents and stakeholders about downtown and issues that affect them, and fosters a downtown community through social events.
