7 Generations TX Water Protectors Benefit

  • The Sahara Lounge 1413 Webberville Road Austin, TX, 78721 United States

It takes a village to safeguard the things that are sacred for our future generations. If you believe that more oil and gas pipelines are not the answer to safeguard our energy needs than please join us! The 7 Generations TX Water Protectors Benefit will showcase talent from performers of all ages and several musical styles who will delight you in a show of authenticity and community. 

This is a family-friendly event - all ages welcome - and all the proceeds will go towards the Water Protectors of West Texas as we resist against prolific drilling near Balmorhea Springs.

The Sahara back yard will open at 4pm. Enjoy a picnic dinner (or late lunch) from the food trailer stationed in the parking lot plus quality coffee and a "bake sale" dessert menu. Then look forward to this great lineup of local talent:
