We present motivation and initial results of a large RV survey of K giants aimed at a detection of low-mass companions. The survey, performed with the Hobby-Eberly Telescope, utilizes high resolution (60,000) spectra for high precision radial velocity measurements. The primary goal of the survey is the selection of astrometrically stable reference stars for the Extrasolar Planet Interferometric Survey key project to be carried out with the Space Interferometry Mission.
