Listen as the Center's Executive Director talks about the fundraiser.

Kentucky Derby Hats will be raffled off with other donated items.  There will be a Live Auction, plus a Stick Horse Race for Kids & Adults sponsored by Britt Drug.
The musical group, the GTO’s, will provide your dinner and dancing music.  Enjoy Mint Juleps & other beverages available at the cash bar.  “Horsin’ Around for the Children’s Center” is open to the public. There is no entry free,  just come in and spend what you want.  All proceeds will benefit Central Texas Children’s Center,  celebrating 60 years of educational services for children of all abilities, with priority given to children with special needs, including those with Autism, seizures, respiratory and gastric disorders, speech disorders, cognitive challenges, motor disorders, and other health, behavioral, social, and developmental disabilities.

This years goal is $25,000 to pay for two critical needs:  replacement of a 14 year old air conditioning system which can no longer be repaired, and replacement of an outdated, non-compliant fire alarm system.
