RR&DT supports children's advocacy Saturday

RR&DT benefits advocacy center

Saturday, Oct. 21, marks the arrival of the fourth annual Rifles, Racks & Deer Tracks fundraising event, benefitting the Hill Country Children’s Advocacy Center in Burnet.

It will take place from 6 -10 p.m. at the Freedom Flyers Hangar, 3202 S. Water St., Burnet.
It may sound like a hunter convention — and Rifles, Racks and Deer Tracks has plenty of prizes and silent auction deals — but the evening of good food, good music and dancing takes aim with serious intent at protecting child victims of physical and sexual abuse.
It is a fundraiser for the Hill Country Children’s Advocacy Center (HCCAC), a non-profit organization serving the children Burnet, Blanco, Llano, Mason, Lampasas and San Saba counties. At the HCCAC, abused children are given a safe place to tell their story, a medical examination to help preserve evidence of abuse and ongoing therapy to deal with the trauma they have suffered.
Music will be provided by local favorite Ben Watson & the Hired Guns. A delicious barbecue dinner will be catered by Peete’s Mesquite. Guests may also enjoy a classic car show hosted by Lakes Area Rods & Classics as well as participating in both live and silent auctions held throughout the evening.
Event tickets are $50 per person or $500 for a reserved table of eight. Also popular is the annual RR&DT drawing for a chance to win a 2017 Polaris Ranger 900 XP 4x4 crew cab cart, valued at $15,600, as well as a variety of amazing guns, including a Springfield 1911 EMP .40SW pistol, a Weatherby Upland 20-gauge shotgun, a Ruger American Predator 6.5 Creedmore, a Henry .30-30 and a Ruger LC9S 9mm pistol.
Drawing tickets are $20 per ticket or $100 for six tickets. Winners need not be present to win.
Event and drawing tickets for Rifles, Racks & Deer Tracks may be purchased online at www.ticketbud.com.

The HCCAC was the creation of founder Yvonne Evans and the late Deborah Jayne Keith, first executive director of HCCAC, who worked selflessly for 17 years to help build the organization from 1998 into a million-dollar child-friendly home which has served more than 5,000 abused children for forensic interviews.
