Cavers and hard rock came together in September for the TCMA FUNdraiser in downtown Austin. With 100+ cavers coming to Buffalo Billiards to contribute and support cave conservation, many hit the dance floor as the Gary Franklin Band rocked the house.

Dozens of prizes were given away along with the big raffles for a Fiesta Texas package, Disneyland tickets, a TCMA lifetime membership – and more – as the event raised $4,000+ for cave conservation.

Donations pour in at TCMA FUNdraiser

More than $4,000 was raised to save Texas caves during the benefit that drew 100+ participants and featured a caver rock band, Tex-Mex dinner and plenty of entertainment.

Harvey Relief Donations

Even though the rains in Houston have taken a break, there is still a long way to go to dig out of the mess Harvey has made of the Texas coast. Let’s all come together as the family of cavers we are and lend a helping hand to the folks who are in need right now.

Please take a few minutes reach deep and give what you can. Remember, you can earmark those donations to a specific caver family if you already have someone in mind to help out.

If you can’t give money, consider giving your time. Rockport, Port Aransas, Houston, and many other communities are in shambles. I’ve rarely seen a group of folks work harder than cavers to reach a goal. Getting these communities back on their feet is a lofty one but it’s doable with us all working together.
