Update on Post: Whataburger aimed to beat its 2011 total of $15,000 and ended up raising more than $21,000 for Bikes for Kids this year!
Austin is such a great town to live in and you really have your pick of charities and events to get involved with, as there is no shortage and this town is about giving back in so many ways.
That said, one of the charities I have been so impressed by in the 5 years I’ve lived here in Austin is JB & Sandy’s Bike for Kids Fundraiser. Now in its 16th year, JB & Sandy of the radio show on Mix 94.7 started the fundraiser “with the idea that every child should experience the joy of getting a brand new bike on Christmas morning. What started as a grass-roots effort, has continued to grow. To date, more than one million dollars has been raised and more than 13,000 bikes, locks and helmets have been given to children who would otherwise go without. The children who receive these bikes are nominated by Mix 94.7 listeners.”
Partnering the last nine years with the event, Whatabuger holds a “All-You-Can-Eat Pancake Breakfast” – Tickets are only $3 and can be purchased at any 29-Austin area Whataburger Restaurants. Last year Whataburger raised more than $15,000 for the fundraising event through its Pancake Breakfast event!
Come out tomorrow morning and enjoy a pancake breakfast (no they are not gluten-free) but it’s a really great event and a great way to give back especially at this time of year! You will help to bring a smile to child’s face on Christmas morning!
