Fan Fare Friday

JUNE 17th, 2016


What happens when Austin’s favorite music, food and on-air talent come together for a day-to-evening event? For almost twenty 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 starting at 7:00 a.m. 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:
