Juice Consulting is thrilled to announce that this year marks its 16th year in business, and the team is blowing it out with a “Sweet 16” birthday bash that will last all year long. Founded in May of 2007 by industry veteran Heather Wagner Reed, Juice started out as a one-woman shop and has grown into a seven person team of some of Austin’s most passionate PR and marketing savants. This May, the company turns 16, and in lieu of a traditional 15-year anniversary, Juice is hosting a private “‘80s Retro Prom” themed red carpet bash on Friday, May 19.

Event highlights will include recycled vinyl corsages and a spin art activation by Gold Rush Vinyl, an ‘80s pop-up photo exhibit by Modern Rocks Gallery, an appearance by Drippy the FreeWater Drop, photo booths as well as complimentary drinks, bites, and more (jello shots anyone?) The evening will also feature a fabulous silent auction benefiting some of Juice’s current nonprofit clients, including Sonic Guild, Swan Songs, HOME Austin, Spaceflight Records, The Adderley School Foundation, A Chance to Rock, The Quiddity Foundation and Grounded in Music, among others to be announced.

I can’t express how proud I am of what we have built – and it’s a thrill to get to honor and shine a (fluorescent!) light on not only our hardworking team but the clients who have supported us throughout the years!”
