Chive On Sioux Falls, a local fundraising group, is hosting a weekend long benefit for A Home For Austin. The two-day event begins Friday, March 7 with a Cut-A-Thon hosted by Artist Hair Studio and Spa in Tea. On Saturday, March 8, the 18th Amendment will be hosting an Unofficial Chive Meetup in Sioux Falls.
“We are so excited to be working with A Home For Austin on our next event as their organization is getting closer to making the dream of building a handicap accessible home a reality. We hold causes that involve young children very close to our hearts,” says Jeff Meuzelaar from Chive On Sioux Falls. “We are very lucky to have the support of Goodroad Band as they are avid Chivers and always help attract hundreds of people to events they perform at.”
Austin is an amazing young boy from Tea. More than two years ago this little boy lost his arms and legs to a rare form of bacterial meningitis. A Home For Austin was started in support of him.
"A Home For Austin is so appreciative of Chive On Sioux Falls, Artist Hair Studio and Spa, and the individuals who are putting together this great fundraiser in March. Thanks to your efforts and support we will move one step closer to the dream of a handicap accessible home for this inspirational little boy." - Kelli Bultena, A Home For Austin committee member.
