The Night for Big Givers

Thank you for joining us at the BIG Give!

Our 11th annual BIG Give was held Friday, September 7th at Hotel Van Zandt. The event featured local food, cocktails, music, and an exciting silent auction. We honored Kathy and Russell Duke, our 2018 Patsy Woods Martin Big Givers, an award that recognizes an inspiring individual making a BIG impact in our community.

Congratulations also go to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Texas and Todos Juntos Learning Center for winning the BIG Give cash awards!

Through year-round programming, I Live Here I Give Here inspires and empowers all to give in this community. After raising $45M in just six giving days and empowering hundreds of thousands of locals through our eight programs, our organization is focused more than ever on connecting and celebrating the community members, families, and businesses that give locally.
