EMS Fundraiser Sees Big Crowds, Successful Night
Wednesday, September 18, 2013 • Posted September 20, 2013

The Hill Country Heartbeat Fundraiser held September 14 at Yett Park, drew a crowd of almost 2,500 in support of Blanco EMS.

The event featured four bands for entertainment, including headliner Bart Crow Band, and plenty of BBQ. Prizes were raffled off throughout the night , but the big ticket item, a 2013 Dodge Ram Lone Star, did not find a new home. Jessica Sadosky’s truck raffle ticket was chosen, but she did not pick the winning key, and so the truck will travel back to the dealership.

The Blanco EMS estimates a total profit of $20,000 raised by the event and by additional donations. A Thank You letter to the sponsors can be found on page 6.

The Hill Country Heartbeat Fundraiser Committee and the Blanco County EMS Board of Directors would like to thank all the individual volunteers who participated in making the 2013 Fundraiser a great success.

They would also thank the following organizations for their hard work: Booze Fighters Motorcycle Club #97, the Blanco County Sheriff’s Office, the Blanco Fire Department, the Blanco Police Department, and the Blanco EMS Department, members of The Leo Club, the Lion’s Club, the Jr. National Honor Society, Cub Scout Pack #497, Boy Scout Troop #497, and Frontier Troop #246.
