2014 Walk to Cure Arthritis
Concordia University | Austin TX
Saturday, April 26th
The Walk to Cure Arthritis raises funds and awareness to fight the nation's leading cause of disability. We aren't just helping the millions of people who live with arthritis pain, we're funding research that's getting us closer to a cure.
The event features a three-mile and one-mile course, with arthritis information and activities for the entire family. Pet owners are encouraged to bring their dogs.
Let's raise funds to find a cure for arthritis, then come together to support each other and walk!

Music for the Soul is an annual concert to benefit Kids in a New Groove, an Austin-based non-profit that provides Texas youth in foster care with a committed one-on-one mentoring relationship through weekly private music instruction, giving students the ability to build concrete strategies for life-long success.
Kids in a New Groove’s vision is that all Texas youth in foster care have the tools and support they need to become successful individuals when they transition out of the foster care system.
The event is headlined by sister act, Court Yard Hounds, and will feature a VIP pre-party and auction plus dinner and rooftop after party for VIP ticket holders. Concert-only tickets also available.

2014 Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Man & Woman of the Year Grand Finale
AT&T Education & Conference Center, 1900 University Ave | Austin TX
Friday, May 2, 2014
Part of a nationwide campaign, this annual gala event supports the South Central Texas Chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, celebrating the 13 local candidates who dedicate 10 weeks raising funds for blood cancer research and treatment. The male and female who bring in the most money for LLS will earn “Man & Woman of the Year” titles for the South Central region. All candidates are raising funds in honor of this year’s Boy & Girl of the Year, two local children currently in remission from blood cancer, along with all patients and their families.
The Grand Finale includes cocktails, food, a silent and live auction. Attend this fun, elegant event while doing your part to help blood cancer research. Every four minutes, someone new is diagnosed with leukemia, lymphoma or myeloma. Every 10 minutes, someone dies. And leukemia still causes more deaths than any other cancer among children.
