The ATC Board is pleased to announce that this year’s HOT 9 Tournament, slated for March 4, 5, and 6th will be
extra special! Participants will have the usual high quality play with excellent competition and great courts, and
a deliciously memorable banquet on Saturday evening inside the VIP room of the Austin Music Hall.
Raffles, silent auctions and tournament sponsorships will be donated to Out Youth,
the only center-based non-profit agency in greater Central Texas. Out Youth provides services and programs
specifically designed for LGBTQ youth and their straight-identified peers. Out Youth is also the recipient
of an award from the Elton John AIDS Foundation to support their new “Knowing Your Status is Smart” (KYSS)
HIV prevention education, testing and counseling program.
This year, for the first time ever, all tournament attendees at the Banquet will also get a free VIP pass to
attend one of Austin’s biggest and most fun events,
“VIVA Las Vegas” which benefits AIDS Services of Austin.
The Tournament banquet will run from 7:00 PM until 8:30 PM, and banquet guests will be able to join the VIVA
event once it begins. Described by the Austin Chronicle’s “style avatar” Stephen Moser as "A Riot of Fun, Music
and Faux Gambling", this event will be open to all HOT contestants and their paid banquet guests. Our guests
can play Blackjack, Craps, Roulette, and Texas Hold 'Em with hundreds of other attendees at the event.
Limited free drink tickets will be provided to banquet attendees as they enjoy spectacular entertainment,
fashion displays, faux gambling, and music from DJ Orion after dinner.
Music Hall is conveniently located just 5 blocks from the Radisson Hotel (HOT’s Official Guest Hotel).
