Rep. Rhetta Andrews Bowers To Host "Together We Dine" Event For House Legislators  print page

Austin, TEXAS – State Representative Rhetta Andrews Bowers (113) will host an event entitled "Together We Dine" for House legislators on Tuesday, March 26 at the Headliners Club in Downtown Austin.

“I am very excited to host my first official event as a member of the Texas House of Representatives. My staff and I have been hard at work over the past few weeks to ensure that our "Together We Dine" event goes perfectly. We hope that it will be a great time for all who attend and that you are moved by the discussion.”

Representative Bowers drew inspiration for the event from the "Together We Dine" events that were put on by Project Unity in Dallas, TX. At Project Unity's "Together We Dine" events, attendees shared a meal with total strangers while they engaged in courageous and safe conversations about race relations, told of their own personal experiences and listened to the stories of fellow diners.

“When I initially envisioned our ‘Together We Dine’ event, I wanted it to be less of a business event and more of a social event in order to help break the grind of the Legislative Session. I wanted it to be an evening of food and friendship for all members; despite the fact that many of us fall on opposite ends of the political spectrum, at the end of the day, we are all friends and colleagues who care about each other due to the bond we have as legislators."

The event is scheduled to take place from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The Headliners Club is located at 221 W 6th Street, Austin TX 78701.
