This year, we are proud to recognize Tito's Handmade Vodka and SOCO Park Apartments for their incredible efforts in making a difference. The 2023 SOCA event will spotlight Tito's Handmade Vodka for its extensive philanthropic work in providing housing solutions to Austin's unhoused community. As a token of our appreciation, we will present the inaugural 'John Gangstad Spirit of Compassion Award' to this distinguished company that embodies the spirit of compassion and kindness.

In addition to Tito's Handmade Vodka, we will also honor SOCO Park Apartments with the 'Outstanding Housing Provider' award.
