The Salvation Army Children's Golf Classic
The Avery Ranch Golf Course
Tuesday, September 15th
The Salvation Army Austin's 20th Annual Golf Tournament will be held at The Avery Ranch Golf Course to raise funds for our women and children shelters and programs. Golf Pro, Joe Ogilvie will conduct a golf clinic for all attendees at 11:30am.
Proceeds from the golf outing will benefit The Salvation Army’s services for children in poverty or experiencing homelessness, including camp, after-school programs and music education for disadvantaged children and teens in Travis and Williamson counties, as well as shelter for families in crisis.
In 2014, our two emergency shelters provided lodging, meals and supportive services to 2,875 individuals. Of those served, 74% percent were women and children.
Organized by a group of community-minded volunteers, the Children’s Golf Classic’s goal is to provide an opportunity for others to give back and have fun while doing it. The funds raised impact countless numbers of children and families through a variety of programs and care provided by The Salvation Army. We welcome your participation and help in meeting our $100,000 fundraising goal. Funds from the 2015 tournament will support initiatives to meet the needs of children and families in need of emergency shelter care.

28th Annual AIDS Walk Austin
Republic Square Park at 4th St and Guadalupe | Austin TX
Sunday | November 8th
When you register and fundraise for AIDS Walk Austin you affect the lives of your neighbors and community. All funds raised stay right here in Central Texas. The AIDS Walk starts and ends at Republic Square Park in downtown Austin. The park is located at the intersections of 4th and Guadalupe Streets. Come early, be loud and stay late with your appetite! Food trucks will be located along 4th Street behind the entertainment stage with a variety of food offerings.
We welcome your canine pal as long as he or she is kept on leash and is friendly to other dogs and children. Dog owners should bring enough supplies to clean up after their pets, especially along the walk route and in grassy areas where children play. Water will be provided for our four-legged friends.
With registration you receive a beautiful AIDS Walk shirt and help us help defray the costs associated with producing the AIDS Walk. We also encourage everyone to raise funds! Last year, the average walker raised more than $115. Any amount you raise is much needed and greatly appreciated. The money you help raise goes to AIDS Services of Austin and the fundraising teams of Austin's other outstanding AIDS service and education providers! Of every dollar donated to ASA, 87% goes directly to services, a mark of good stewardship. Your contribution will make a difference in someone’s life right here in Austin.
Once you register you will be given a personal fundraising web page, where you can track and manage your fundraising progress, and have sponsors donate to you easily and securely online. You can also use our Facebook app to make your fundraising that much easier with your friends and family.
