Wrappy Hour ~ Benefitting Austin Angels

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors® ~ 512.346.1799

This season has been full of wonderful gatherings planned to give back to the community and have fun doing it! Kara McGregor Sr. Vice President of Business Development with Independence Title Company teamed up with Austin PT50 for a wonderful event benefiting “Austin Angels.”

The Austin Angels mission is to walk alongside foster children and their caretakers by offering consistent support through intentional giving, relationship building and mentorship.

We gave the gift of joy this season by each participant selecting a foster child and gift on their wish list. We brought our gifts to “Wrappy Hour” at Maggiano’s in the Domain. It was a thrill to see all the gifts we wrapped under the Christmas tree and then loaded in cars to be delivered!

“When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully everyone is blessed”…Maya Angelou

“The wise man does not lay up his own treasures. The more he gives to others, the more he has for his own”…..Lao Tzu

Dorie Dillard is not only a great Real Estate Agent, she's dedicated to her people in the community, always there for the cause, for all the right reasons. She leaves no one behind. She herself is an Austin Angel, but would never make that claim. Yet, those of us in the Real Estate industry know it and we are proud of Dorie.

Dorie, I love your giving heart! What a wonderful cause - I KNOW your foster children and their caretakers are so appreciative of their Austin Angels too. 

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
