We’re still buzzing from a memorable party featuring our awesome customers and partners at the 2018 Lithy Awards Party on October 3 at the Belmont in Austin. 

A few of our favorite moments? Guests sipping our celebratory Lithy cocktail, the red carpet, the air-conditioned indoors, and the new faces and trophies we saw on stage.  lithium_05.jpg
