The Hill Country Children's Advocacy Center's fundraising banquet, Rifles, Racks, and Deer Tracks, will make a comeback for its fifth year on Saturday, Oct. 27. This year, the event will see a change of venue, as it moves from its usual location at the Freedom Flyers Hangar to the YMCA of the Highland Lakes in Burnet.

Guests will enjoy dinner, drinks, live music, and silent and live auctions while they enjoy a night out with their community as they come together to celebrate the HCCAC and its service to Burnet and surrounding counties.

All proceeds from the event will benefit the HCCAC, which serves abused and neglected children and their caregivers in Burnet, Blanco, Llano, Mason, San Saba, and Lampasas counties. The organization has been making a difference in the lives of children and families since 1992 and continues to make children's safety its number one priority.

Spring has sprung in the Hill Country and the community will be able to celebrate it with a night full of fun and music while benefitting local organizations and the children of the area.

The City of Burnet is hosting a Spring Fling sock hop at the YMCA of the Highland Lakes on Saturday, May 5. All proceeds will go to the YMCA Strong Kids Program and the Hill Country Children's Advocacy Center.

The YMCA Strong Kids is a campaign that raises funds and resources for YMCA programs which assist children and families in many areas of development.

“The Strong Kids Program subsidizes people who don't have the ability to pay for our programs and provides them with reduced rates,” said YMCA Operations Director Jennifer Kenson.

“There are endless stories of people that are impacted by the dollars raised in the community,” Kenson said. “And every dollar given here stays here.”
