About the beneficiaries:

The Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas is the only non-profit, free-standing pediatric hospital in a 46-county region, serving all children from Central Texas every year, regardless of their ability to pay. Dell turns no child away. Their mission inspires us to care for and improve the health of those served with a special concern for the sick and the poor.

The Women Called Moses Center is a non-profit organization created to provide a safe-haven for battered women and their children. Their mission is to educate and provide support for abused women and children and to foster programs that will improve their socio-economic status.
