About The Ice Ball
Join us for the 9th annual Ice Ball benefiting Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Texas. The Ice Ball is an amazing way to support Austin’s youth while enjoying a fantastic evening of gourmet food, drinks, and dancing. This year’s gala features a wonderful live and silent auction. Guests will have the opportunity to bid on exotic hunting trips, relaxing vacation getaways, and local Austin goodies. Funds raised through this event directly impact the lives of children by matching at-risk youth with adult mentors.
