2013 New Wave Ball
The Austin Chapter of Credit Unions showed their support to the Austin Children’s Shelter (ACS) by sponsoring their New Wave Ball. This annual event is a fundraiser for the ACS. As a second year sponsor, the Austin Chapter of Credit Unions helped ACS raise $77,280 with this fun 1980’s dance party event. This awesome event featured great 80’s music from 2 DJs, special drinks, photo booth, video arcade, live auction and raffle, a Delorean auto exhibit plus a spectacular costume contest! Since 2010, this event has raised over $140,000 for ACS!
Austin Children's Shelter protects and heals children, young adults and families in need. Established in 1984, ACS provides emergency shelter and long-term residential care for children and youth who have experienced abuse and neglect or are at extreme risk. Through a variety of critical services designed to reduce emotional trauma, a teen mother program and services for youth aging out of foster care, ACS can have a sustaining, positive effect on young lives.
