The Round Rock Circle of Friends invites the community to celebrate good health for its children at the 11th Annual Toast to the Rock wine festival, benefiting Dell Childrenâ€™s Medical Center. The event will be held from 3 to 6 p.m. Sunday, April 18, at the Fern Bluff Community Center in Round Rock, 7320 Wyoming Springs Drive.
Toast to the Rock is a fabulous afternoon of wine-tasting, food sampling, silent auction and musical entertainment. Tickets are $50 per person or $90 per couple, and can be purchased online or through the Childrenâ€™s Medical Center Foundation website.
Round Rock Circle of Friends celebrates eleven years of success since it held its first Toast to the Rock event in 1999. The group has raised more than $525,000 for childrenâ€™s healthcare, first supporting Childrenâ€™s Hospital of Austin and now supporting Dell Childrenâ€™s Medical Center since opening in 2007.
Dell Childrenâ€™s is an extraordinary medical center and is the first hospital in the world to receive the prestigious LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) Platinum designation, given by the U.S. Green Building Council. This state-of-the-art pediatric medical center conserves energy, reduces water consumption, uses renewable
resources and recycles waste. As a not-for-profit medical center, every child throughout a 46-county Central Texas region â€” including Round Rock â€” receives outstanding pediatric healthcare, regardless of his or her familyâ€™s ability to pay for services.
