Bill Morris: Texas

Austin CowParade for the kids!

Austin isn't the first for this kind of fundraising, and this isn't even the first of its kind here. It is fun, though:

Proceeds went to Dell Children's Medical Center and The Superhero Kids Endowment. I didn't participate in the auction, but I donate part of my fee from every real estate transaction to the Dell hospital, so I am thrilled to see this huge benefit for them. Here's a little more about this event from local station KXAN, linked by the Austin Business Journal:
