Touch-A-Truck 2019

UPDATE: As of 10/2/19, the Touch-a-Truck event at Camp Mabry had a total attendance of over 6,000 attendees, 70+ trucks, 300+ volunteers, and our team helped raise over $164,000 and counting for programs at SAFE’s Children’s Shelter. This was their biggest year yet! Check out the photos from the event here!

We are excited to announce that Touch-A-Truck 2019 has been rescheduled for Saturday, September 28, 2019 at Camp Mabry! Thank you for your patience as SAFE worked to secure a new date after the initial decision was made to cancel the event in May due to weather.

All VIP and General Admission tickets purchased for the May event will be valid for the new date. Don’t have a ticket? There are still plenty available for purchase!

The Touch-A-Truck event will again feature live music, food trucks, and a Kid Zone with a petting zoo, face painting, barrel train rides, and much more! The Realty Austin team proudly presents this event along with H-E-B to help raise funds for programs at the SAFE | Children’s Shelter campus.

What is Touch-A-Truck?

Touch-A-Truck is a family-friendly event that provides an opportunity for kids of all ages to come to Camp Mabry and explore the vehicles they’ve seen in movies, books, and just driving around town. From fire trucks and ambulances to backhoes and bulldozers, Touch-A-Truck has them all! This year’s event will also feature food trucks and a Kid Zone complete with a petting zoo, face painting, barrel train rides, and more. Check out the photos from last year’s event!

How Much Are Tickets?

The generosity of community volunteers allows the Touch-a-Truck event to keep the low ticket price of $5 per person for children 17 and under and $10 for adults 18 and over, no ticket necessary for 1 and under. Limited quantities of VIP Admission tickets are $25 per person which includes VIP parking and early entrance to the event at 9:00 AM for those eager to be the first to honk the horns. General admission begins at 10 a.m.

Realty Austin’s Commitment to Support SAFE’s Children’s Shelter

Realty Austin agents and staff will volunteer their time and energy at the Touch-a-Truck event to make the fundraiser a success for SAFE’s Children’s Shelter and the families that the SAFE programs serve. Check out our agents in action last year!

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.

Join the Cause!

You can purchase tickets to join us at the event on Saturday, September 28, 2019, become a sponsor, or donate online if you are unable to attend the event. We hope to see you there!
