Celebrate Valentine's Day and a couple good causes

What is Austin's House? Its mission is simply to provide a safe haven for any child in need and provide a nurturing living and learning environment. It also helps prevent child abuse and neglect by providing education and community awareness.

When that is not available, Austin's House provides the temporary care for these children and support services for them and their families. Wow, that's a big job, and you can help by attending an event at beautiful Genoa Lakes Golf Club and Resort.

The attire is semi-formal with black tie optional so get dressed up for a memorable night on the town. You will enjoy a full evening of fine food, great entertainment, dancing and a fabulous live and silent auction. This is the perfect Valentine's Day gift for your sweetheart.
