We’re now planning for our 26th on Thursday, October 10, 2019, but thanks again for making our 25th a successful fundraiser!

What a night is was for our 25th Annual BBQ Fundraiser!

Thanks to Half Off Fireworks for an action-packed thrilling Fireworks Show!

We hope you were there to help us celebrate our 25th Anniversary BBQ Fundraiser.

Again this year, the community’s support was phenomenal in our fundraising efforts. As Dripping Springs grows the needs of the elderly in the community are increasing. We have been meeting these needs for a long time and we count on you to help us each year. We sincerely appreciate all of our Sponsors, the businesses and individuals who contributed to our Silent Auction, as well as our Live Auction. And a BIG THANKS to our vendors, all of our volunteers, Hot Texas Swing Band for their music and Shelly Elena Photography for the incredible photos!

It is with thanks for the loyal support we have received for decades that we are able to do our work. Our hope is those who are new to the community will help us continue these good deeds by joining us with their support.

Our annual fundraiser and donations are critically important in helping to provide necessary services to the elderly in the greater Dripping Springs Area. Because of your support we are able to provide meals for Our Daily Bread – a hot meal delivery program for the home-bound, medic alert devices for summoning help in an emergency, financial assistance for low income seniors in times of dire need, funding for special events at Hill Country Care for their residents, and numerous other programs beneficial to the elderly. The Friends Foundation is an all volunteer non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.
