HAAM (Health Alliance For Austin Musicians) does great things for the artistic community in our wonderful city, and this year marks their 13th year anniversary! On Benefit Day, local businesses come together and donate a percentage of their sales to HAAM to support the healthcare needs of musicians.

Bands and artists perform throughout the city at participating locations—it’s a fantastic opportunity to give back to the people who make Austin the “live music capital of the world.”

On HAAM Day 2017, HAAM beat its goal of raising over half a million dollars. This year, Lyft is committed to helping make HAAM Day the most successful fundraiser yet. Concert-goers can use the code HAAMDAY2018 on 9/11 for $1 off a ride to participating HAAM Day venues (or claim here). Every time the code is used, Lyft will donate $1 to HAAM in support of Austin’s musicians.
