Friends ready for annual fundraiser

The Friends Foundation will host its 24th Annual barbecue fundraiser at The Salt Lick Pavilion on Thursday, Oct. 5.

Guests will enjoy an evening of live music, a live auction and silent auction, Salt Lick barbecue and much more.

Guests should arrive early to preview items in the live and silent auction, which was voted No. 1 in Central Texas. The self-serve Salt Lick barbecue buffet line will be open from 6 to 8 p.m.

The award winning Hot Texas Swing Band, proudly playing western swing, will provide musical entertainment and Bama Brown of KVET 98.1 FM radio will be the master of ceremonies.

Guests may also enjoy free product samples in the hospitality area provided by several area wineries, distilleries and breweries, including Thirsty Planet Brewery, Duchman Family Winery, Dripping Springs Vodka and Moonshine Sweet Tea.

The annual fundraiser is critically important in providing services to the needy elderly in the greater Dripping Springs area. All monies raised will help support The Friends Foundation’s programs. Those include Our Daily Bread, a hot meal delivery program for the homebound, and Phillps Lifeline, which provides medic alert devices for summoning help in an emergency. Monies will also go toward financial assistance in times of dire need, fund special events for residents of Hill Country Care, and other programs beneficial to seniors.

To make a donation or for more information please visit: or call (512) 592 1345. The Friends Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.
