Fan Fare Friday

JUNE 19th, 2015

What happens when Austin’s favorite music, food and on-air talent come together for a day-to-evening event? For 16 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 7:00 a.m. 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 continue the tradition of fun 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 7:00 – 11:30 a.m. Enjoy the pancake pileup, face painting, a bounce house and a special performance by the Biscuit Brothers and more!

Gaming Stations

AMD is hosting state of the art PlayStation, XBOX and desktop games that kids . . . and adults . . . can play from 9:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. (suggested donation of $15 or a fan).

Some tried and true Fan Fare Friday favorites are back again this year. Live music lasts all day, culminating with KGSR’s Lonestar State of Mind evening concert (tickets required), on-site broadcasts from KXAN, KGSR and BobFM, fun giveaways, special guests and more.

NEW THIS YEAR: We will have a northern drop-off location during Happy Hour! Visit us at Cover 2 from 4 p.m – 6 p.m!
