7th Annual Tyler’s Dam That Cancer Exceeds Fundraising Goal of a Half-Million Dollars
The Seventh Annual Tyler’s Dam That Cancer fundraising event, hosted by Flatwater Foundation on Monday in Austin, Texas, was an enormous success for both the paddling and cancer communities. With generous involvement from a number of participants, the fundraiser exceeded its goal of half a million dollars, raising $515,000 to help fund critical mental health programs for people affected by cancer.
This year was the biggest year yet, with 160 participants paddling the 21-mile journey on standup paddle boards from Mansfield Dam to Tom Miller Dam. The event culminated in a riverside celebration on the LCRA Lawn, where paddlers were welcomed to shore.
Party-goers enjoyed live entertainment by DJ Abe the Assassin, food and drinks by sponsors including NadaMoo!, Stiles Switch BBQ & Brew, KCCO Beer and Mighty Swell Cocktails, a live auction and raffle, with 100 percent of donations and proceeds going to The Flatwater Foundation to continue their mission to provide mental health services to those affected by cancer.
