As noted previously, my family received free tickets for advertising the event. All opinions are my own.
I finally attended a Touch-a-Truck event! Kristin Shaw, from Two Cannoli, brought the official event to Austin a few years ago and every year, something has come up and I could not attend.
I was BEYOND excited when I realized I could go this year and to make it even better, it was at Camp Mabry. There is so much history there and my kids love it.
If you want to know more about Touch-A-Truck, check out The Austin Children’s Shelter website. This fundraiser brought in more than $40,000 last year. I can not WAIT to hear the numbers for this year.
I am sure they surpassed their goals, despite the mud and threatening clouds that never broke.
There’s not much left to say, except I hope I see you there next year.
Here are a few shots from the event. I’ll post all the military pictures in a few days. That is worthy of it’s own post and William plans to walk us through what each and every tank is and tell us much as he can about it.
