29th Annual Rare & Fine Wine Auction – A Rousing Success!
We are thrilled to let you know that with your help we met our fundraising goals.
Whether you contributed to these events as a sponsor, donor or volunteer, the members of the Auction Committee along with Foundation staff are humbled by your generosity and forever grateful for your participation in our auction festivities. Here’s what you helped accomplish.
For our auction benefactor Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas, this year’s “Paddles Up for Dell” raised our two-year, matched-cash contribution to more than $130,000. Money raised this year is specifically earmarked for the Dell Children’s Health Express clinic, a mobile bus that delivers primary and preventative health care to sick and poor children in several Austin-area neighborhoods. Additional proceeds raised from live and silent auction lots serve to propel the Foundation’s mission locally and throughout the state of Texas in the form of cash donations, event sponsorships, grants and scholarships. We are proud of our track record of giving back to the community, which now totals nearly $2 million.
