The generosity of community volunteers allows the Touch-a-Truck event to keep the low ticket price of $5 per person.

Limited quantities of VIP Admission tickets are $25 per person include VIP parking and early entrance to the event at 9:00AM for those eager to be the first to honk the horns.

Angela Glode, Chief Development Officer of SAFE Alliance said, “We welcome Realty Austin and H-E-B as our Co-Presenting Sponsors this year to help spread awareness and raise money for the SAFE programs which save lives for our Austin area’s youth and families. It is our hope that our marquee sponsors will influence our communities to participate in the event and help more families at the Austin Children’s Shelter.”

In 2016, The Touch-a-Truck event at Camp Mabry had a total attendance of 5,500+ attendees and Realty Austin helped raise $115,000 in ticket sales and sponsorships. Check out 2016’s event photos!

In a partnership with SAFE, the event volunteers and sponsors are dedicated to raising funds to help children and families who need a safe place to call home. The goal of the event is to raise more money than ever to cover the growing costs of providing basic needs, quality care, and services at the shelter.

Yvette Boatwright, co-owner of Realty Austin and an ACS Women of Hope Founder said, “We are honored to be working again hand-in-hand with SAFE Alliance to sponsor Touch-a-Truck benefiting Austin Children’s Shelter, an organization we have supported for over 6 years!
