Charities Supported

Every year we review requests for financial assistance from throughout the community in a variety of shapes and sizes. Our goal is to identify immediate needs where we can provide assistance to the highest level of impact, and put the funds we raise to work as soon as possible.

Paddles Up Campaign

In recent years, the Dripping Springs Wild Game Dinner has chosen a specific charity to be the recipient of the Paddles Up campaign conducted during the dinner. This year’s Paddles Up charity is:

Sarah’s Spurs
Sarah’s Spurs was started by a group of inpatient oncology nurses at Seton Medical Center Austin, all of whom have been affected by cancer in many different ways. As oncology nurses, we support all different kinds of cancer and have loved ones who have been affected. However, blood cancer is particularly difficult for us.

Sarah’s Spurs raises funds to support The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS). The money that is raised helps provide free education for patients and ensures that patients have access to the treatment they need.
