In order to keep our sponsorship promise and give 100% of our sponsorship donations to build wells, we have to raise our operations expenses separately.
To do this, we run Water to Thrive signature events throughout the year. These events are great ways to spread the news about Water to Thrive
and to raise money to further our mission.


Chef's Table Austin

In February 2012, we held our first annual Chef's Table Austin event
to benefit Water to Thrive. That first event was a two-week online auction
for fabulous multi-course dinners prepared by some of the city's best chefs.

In the years since, Chef's Table Austin has evolved into an annual evening
of live auctions and festivity, one of the highlights
of the Water to Thrive calendar. The 2016 event will mark
the fifth anniversary of Chef's Table, with participation from such
kitchen luminaries as Chef David Bull, Chef Wolfgang Murber, Chef Rob Snow,
and Chef Andrew Wiseheart. Join us on September 14 at The Brodie Homestead
to sip, nibble, and bid! Click here for tickets and all the information about the evening.


Water to Thrive 5K and Kids' K

Each year, Water to Thrive hosts our 5K run for water to help support our mission and growth. The event is a fun way for families, churches, and schools to come together for a great cause and a lot of fun. With face painting, snacks, live music, and other activities, the 5K has become a popular event in the Austin community.

The 2016 Water to Thrive 5K will be held in February at Concordia University Texas.
Planning is under way for the 2017 race. If you are interested in volunteering
for the event, please fill out our volunteer contact information (HERE)
and specify that you want to help with the 5K.



Water Angels 

Our Water Angels are those special, committed supporters who have taken their level of involvement to the next level. By committing to provide $1000 or more in a given year to support our operations and growth, these people have joined us as partners, dedicated to addressing the water crisis.

 Without our Water Angels, we would not be able to grow and expand to serve more people. If you are moved to pledge your support as a Water Angel,
please contact Water to Thrive Executive Director Susanne Wilson
