11th Annual FAVE Awards

Thursday, October 29, 2020 (5:30 PM - 8:00 PM) (CDT)


Over the last few months, Austin area businesses have faced many challenges. While everyday brings something new and solutions are still developing, we see businesses meeting challenges with a fierce determination to succeed.

This year, the 2020 FAVE Awards will highlight and celebrate the many businesses in our city who are committed to supporting their customers, employees, and our community through resiliency, adaptability, and innovation.

Join us on Thursday, October 29th for an evening of networking and celebration of the Central Texas business and non-profit community!

Featuring Keynote Kathy Terry speaking about business, leadership, and change in 2020.

A fierce female and serial entrepreneur, Kathy Terry has been making waves since starting her first business over 20 years ago. She is the co-founder of P.
