Staff at the Hill Country Children's Advocacy Center in Burnet are gearing up for the return of one of their most popular fundraisers this Saturday, Oct. 26.

The sixth annual Rifles, Racks, and Deer Tracks fundraiser has grown each year since its first event, and, along with the annual Designer Purse Bingo, continues to support the HCCAC's operations financially and through community support.

“The HCCAC's fundraisers are a tremendous benefit for the center,” Executive Director Ken Nikel said. “Last year, the net proceeds from both Rifles, Racks, and Deer Tracks and Designer Purse Bingo covered the cost of two employees in 2019. We are grateful for the generosity of the Hill Country Community.”

Burnet County residents can eat barbecue for Corden's Cause this weekend.

A barbecue fundraiser for four-year-old Corden Fidler and his family is scheduled for Saturday, March 9, to assist with medical and travel costs.

Corden, son of former BFD firefighter Mathew Fidler, was seriously injured after a shooting which killed his mother and grandmother, Shelly Fidler and Sherry Gray, in Temple on Dec. 20.

Corden was shot five times, once in his head and four times in his abdomen, and has endured multiple surgeries to continue fighting for his life in the Intensive Care Unit at McLane Children's Hospital in Temple.

“Corden is doing pretty good,” Mathew Fidler said Thursday, Feb. 28. “It's pretty amazing; medically speaking, he shouldn't be alive.”
