Community Events & Partnerships

End of Treatment Parties with Tiff’s Treats

Dell Children’s is proud to partner with Austin’s own, Tiff’s Treats to provide warm cookies to our Children’s Blood and Cancer Center patients reaching the special milestone of the end of their treatment. Dell Children’s staff host an End of Treatment Celebration for these brave patients and our partners at Tiff’s Treats just make it that much sweeter. Thank you, Tiff’s Treats!

Ascension Seton Austin Marathon

The Austin Marathon Gives charity program connects non-profit organizations to passionate race participants willing to fundraise and raise awareness for causes that give back to our local community. Individuals can select one of our official charities to run with and add even more meaning to your training and race day miles by supporting a worthy cause, like Dell Children’s Medical Center. Since its inception 7 years ago, the programs charitable donations total of $3,893,298.

Guitars & Pars Presented by The Beck Group

The Beck Group in Austin, the integrated architecture and construction firm, through its longstanding relationship with Dell Children’s, learned that the hospital’s music therapy program was in need of support. Beck’s solution was to create a unique event – far beyond the typical golf tournament – that raises money and increases awareness of the benefits of the unique music program. Guitars & Pars is a two-day live music and golf event designed to reflect the mission of Dell Children’s Music Therapy program. It kicks off with a concert at the YETI Flagship store in downtown Austin, featuring Texas country musicians. Day two of Guitars & Pars follows with a golf tournament and post-golf concert at Barton Creek Country Club.

Extra Life Game Day

Extra Life unites thousands of gamers to play games and heal kids by fundraising for local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across North America.

Twice per year, once in the spring and once in the fall, KFC offers a coupon book to customers who donate $1 or more to Dell Children’s Medical Center. The coupon book contains over $30 in savings and raises thousands of dollars annually to support Dell Children’s HERE Campaign.
