Enjoy some of our favorite highlights of the day in the slide show below…
JUNE 21ST, 2013
What happens when Austin’s favorite music, food and on-air talent come together for a day-to-evening event? For 14 years Family Eldercare has been fortunate to benefit from that unforgettable combo we call Fan Fare Friday – our largest and most critical event of the year!
Join KXAN’s Jim Spencer, KGSR and BobFM on-air talent and a fantastic roster of local musicians from 6AM to MIDNIGHT at the iconic Threadgill’s World Headquarters in downtown Austin. Drop off fans or funds and stick around for great food, live music and fun for all ages!
Details are still coming together for this year’s event, but we are excited to announce some new features this year:
Threadgill’s Pancake Pileup
Donors bringing a fan or $15 donation can pile up delicious pancakes as a sweet reward for their generosity. Special thanks to Threadgill’s for sponsoring this fun new addition to Fan Fare Friday.
Children Are The Future
Kick off a future of philanthropy by encouraging your kiddos or youth group to turn in their Fan Drive donations from 7 – 11:30 am. Enjoy the pancake pileup, facepainting, a children’s concert and more!
Some tried and true Fan Fare Friday favorites are back again this year. Live music lasts all day, including KGSR’s Lonestar State of Mind evening concert (tickets required), on-site broadcasts from KXAN, KGSR and BobFM, fun giveaways, special guests and more.
