What an amazing evening we all had at this year’s Fall Festival! It was a night of great costumes, prizes, food, fun and laughter! Special thanks again to the band “Better Than Bingo” for coming out and performing for the 6th year in a row. Maudie’s Tex-Mex, Papa John’s, Thundercloud Subs, Austin’s Pizza, Lamar Food Store, Amy’s Ice Cream, and VERTS donated prizes for our free raffle. Other sponsors included Professionals of Texas Fire & Safety, arrangeCARE pc, Kitty & Cliff Sinclair, Catherine Yelenosky, Deborah Peterson, Dolores Gonzales, Mary Knight, Jeff & Gina Shinn, Marilyn & Bill Hartman, John Van Wyk, Charlene Crump, Jennifer Stayton, Betty Marshall, and Victor Winter.
We had a wonderful out pouring of volunteers from Austin New Church, Southpointe parents and friends, UT Best Buddies, Brain Injury Association of Austin and Mary Lee Foundation board, staff members & friends. Board President Peggy Van Wyk and Board Member Nancy Cates made the delicious chili. Lindsay & Dennis Ford, BK Paryani, Divakar Shetty, Tonya Wharton, and Norma Martinez provided an array of yummy side dishes. Norma Martinez also donated 200 game prizes. Members of Austin New Church donated gift cards for the costume contest and baked goods for the Cake Walk & Roll.
It is with the support of all of the sponsors, donors, and volunteers that we were able to make this such a memorable and special event. All of us here at Mary Lee Foundation thank you for helping to make this event possible.
