On Friday, June 19, the Austin community will come together for food, great music, fun and games to support Family Eldercare’s annual summer fan drive. At Fan Fare Friday you can donate new box fans (or dollars) to help families in need stay cool during summer months. You can join KXAN’s Jim Spencer, KGSR and a big lineup of local musicians from 7 a.m. to midnight at the iconic Threadgill’s World Headquarters in downtown Austin. Drop off fans or funds and stick around for live music and fun for all ages!

Kick off a future of philanthropy by encouraging your kids or youth groups to turn in their Fan Drive donations from 7 – 11:30 a.m. Donors bringing a new box fan or a $15 donation will recieve delicious pancakes as a sweet reward for their generosity.
