Cast an eye toward Lake Austin Monday
and you might spot a flotilla of people aboard standup paddleboards.
Nearly 200 people will paddle 21 miles from Mansfield Dam to Tom Miller Dam during Tyler’s Dam that Cancer. The event raises money for the Flatwater Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides access to mental health services for those affected by cancer.
The public is invited to celebrate their finish with a party at the Lower Colorado River Authority offices, 3701 Lake Austin Boulevard. To attend, make a donation, either in advance at http://tylersdtc.com/ or at the door. The party will feature music from DJ Abe the Assassin, food from Texican Cafe, and beverages from Landshark, William Chris Vineyards, Live Soda and Chameleon Cold Brew.
Paddlers are expected to arrive at about 5:30 p.m. The party runs from 6-8 p.m.
Organizers hope to raise $700,000 at this year’s event. All proceeds will help support families in need.
