We were excited to participate in our first Amplify Austin campaign last week – and even more excited about all the support we received! Thanks to generous donors, Tony Foundation raised more than $3,800 during Austin’s annual 24-hour charity fundraising drive. That’s critical funding for families dealing with cancer that need financial help.
Amplify Austin provided the opportunity for Tony Foundation to raise funds online and in various locations around town. Our special thanks to ATX NAPA pool league for taking donations at the Grand Billiards and Social Club as well as Fast Eddie’s Billiards, we appreciate the support! And when Amplify Austin officially kicked off at 6:00 p.m. Thursday evening, we also collected donations at St. Elmo Brewing and Click’s Billiards. It was great to see so many friends and celebrate the day of giving in Austin, and it was a lot of fun — St. Elmo Brewing even featured a live bluegrass band!
We are proud to have such a supportive network of friends, family, and strangers (friends we just haven’t had the pleasure to meet – yet!) who believe in our mission and are helping Tony Foundation make a difference. We look forward to assisting another family in just a few weeks. We can’t wait.
