Fans from Fans

JUNE 16th, 2017


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 now call Fans from Fans – our largest and most critical event of the year!

Join KXAN’s Jim Spencer 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:

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 addition to Fan Fare Friday.

Children’s Concert and Fun Zone

Kick off a future of philanthropy by encouraging your kiddos or youth group to turn in their Fan Drive donations from 7:00 – 11:00 a.m. Enjoy the pancake pileup, a fire truck, a bounce house, and special performances! There will be fun craft projects, music, and a special photo booth with Kaxan of City Dog Austin!
