Au40 2014 Tables by Jonathan GarzaAustin was a-buzz this weekend with the celebration of the 16th annual Austin Under 40 Awards held at Austin Music Hall Saturday. The city’s best and brightest came together for a night of recognition for young professionals who have contributed significantly to their community. For the past 15 years, Austin has gathered to celebrate the achievements of the city’s younger generation.

Guests of the event were treated to a four-course meal created by acclaimed chef Brad Sorenson, while serenaded by local soul band The Nightowls. A silent auction was curated for the event, providing attendees an opportunity to bid on items such as a 24-hour Lamborghini test drive, private lunch with Joshua Baer of Capital Factory and a Deep Eddy “Dive In” private party for 50 of the winner’s closest friends.

Austin Under 40 partnered with Hail A Cab taxi dispatch service that evening and every individual who used the hash tag “#Au40” and the Twitter handle “@yellowcab_ATX,” helped donate $5 per cab ride to the Austin Under 40 beneficiary, the Austin YMBL Sunshine Caps and YWA Foundation.
