This annual fundraising event is critically important in providing services to the needy elderly in the greater Dripping Springs Area. All monies raised help support The Friends Foundation’s programs such as: Our Daily Bread – a hot meal delivery program for the homebound; Philips Lifeline a medic alert device for summoning help in an emergency; Financial Assistance in times of dire need; special events at Hill Country Nursing and Rehab for their residents; and other worthy programs improving the quality of life for the elderly.
