Event Details

From the beginning, the goal of our special event has been to put the “fun” back into fundraising. In 2020, Jeff Baldus literally sold the jacket off his back to raise additional support for the AAF. In 2021, we raised over $1,100 to grant Tanya Medgaarden’s wish of shaving off Taggert’s beard. In 2022, we were blessed by the musical stylings of the St. Andrews Sisters and a surprise marriage proposal. In 2023, we roared to the comedy stylings of Marty Helle and honored our founder, Mike Ruzek.

We will continue that tradition of keeping the fun in fundraising. Please join us as we strive to raise even more money to further our mission of “Enhancing the community through charitable giving.”

We’ll have both a Silent and a Live Auction. Previews of items will be available on our website beginning on Tuesday, February 6.

Please join AAF Board Chair Taggert Medgaarden, Steve Barrett, and a KIMT anchor for a wonderful evening that will provide you and your sweetheart an opportunity to show your love for Austin and the Greater Austin Area.
