Celebrating 2022 Family Day with Austin Subaru! - Emily C

The Team at Austin Subaru believes that every child should have access to the resources needed to reach their full potential. For this reason, Austin Subaru is a proud supporter of WAYA (West Austin Youth Association), a non-profit organization that is working diligently to provide recreational and educational opportunities to the youth in Austin, Texas. To do this, WAYA offers a wide selection of fun activities in a safe community environment, making it that much easier for children to thrive. This year, WAYA held their annual Family Day fundraiser, where all proceeds go towards helping this organization continue their essential programs like WAYA Preschool, youth sport leagues, and camps. Any funds raised also cover free sports clinics, staff development, scholarships, high quality equipment, coach training and so much more. Austin Subaru is passionate about getting involved in the community, especially when helping kiddos is involved! Because of this, the team at Austin Subaru was excited to contribute $10,000 to the 2022 Family Day Event for WAYA. In addition to this great news, over $560,000 was raised from Family Day, which surpassed WAYA's goal of $500,000!

Austin Subaru Keeps Austin Beautiful! - Haley B

There truly is nothing better than supporting a great cause alongside your best buds and teammates. To celebrate the Earth Day season, the team at Austin Subaru was excited to dedicate a morning to beautifying the Wooten Neighborhood Park in support of Keep Austin Beautiful! For nearly 40 years, this incredible organization has had a mission to bring all Austinites together to get involved in volunteer work that will benefit our community. This includes adorning green spaces, clearing out waterways, and reducing waste, all of which are crucial in preserving Austin’s natural beauty and quality of life. It’s safe to say that the morning of April 9th was full of clear blue skies and positive vibes! The crew at Austin Subaru had such a phenomenal time refreshing the garden beds, planting flowers, revitalizing a local basketball court, and cleaning up trash at Wooten Neighborhood Park. The end result was absolutely stunning and, all in all, taking care of this green space was the perfect way to spend a beautiful Saturday morning. Additionally, it felt great to nourish a community that works hard to support us each day; loving and caring for our planet is so very important! Austin Subaru is a huge fan of everything that Keep Austin Beautiful stands for, so they absolutely had to show their support even further. As a result, this day of beautifying the park also included a $10,000 sponsorship for Keep Austin Beautiful. Austin Subaru encourages you to get a group together and find a place in your community that could use some loving!

A Fun Day at the Shenanigans Scramble! - Josh D

Austin Subaru was overjoyed to support the Shenanigans Scramble with a $3,000 sponsorship! This super fun golf event was held for The Locker, a non-profit organization that aims to educate and empower the youth in the community. They provide a way for students to learn to serve their community and, in doing so, they help their fellow students in need. The environment created by The Locker gives at-risk students the opportunity to become involved in the leadership of the organization; many students who received aid from The Locker end up being volunteers for The Locker, which is an extremely powerful model for the organization. The Shenanigans Scramble was a super fun and collaborative way to support this great cause! Austin Subaru knows how important it is to support the children within our community. There was absolutely no question in whether or not they were going to contribute to this event and celebrate all of the amazing work done by The Locker!

Austin Subaru Loves Learning... and Flying Kites! - Lisa L

Thank you Austin Subaru for sponsoring the 93rd Annual ABC Kite Fest with $35,000!

Austin Subaru and the Now at Bat Gala! - Conner R

Austin Subaru was excited to contribute $5,000 to the Now at Bat Gala for RBI Austin, which included sponsoring 15 kids in Player Development Academy in 2022! This annual benefit aims to raise funds and awareness for RBI Austin, a mentoring program that leverages baseball and softball to address the fatherless crisis in East Austin. Their mission is to make sports more accessible and affordable, provide support for players on and off the field, connect kids to mentor relationships, and close the gap between the upper and lower class. They want to engage and develop inner-city Austin youth athletically, academically, and spiritually, empowering them to lead the transformation of their communities. The Now at Bat Gala was a wonderful way to get people together to support an amazing cause, and Gus Hoelscher from Austin Subaru (shown in photo) was happy to attend! "The biggest takeaway I had was the number of kids this program is supporting, and the support from the community to make it happen. That night over $700k was raised for over a thousand children that would never have been given the opportunity to play our great national pastime. The work this organization is doing to help children through teamwork, sportsmanship, and respect is outstanding and we are glad to be a part of it". - Gus Hoelscher, Service Director at Austin Subaru
