Hand to Hold’s 10th Anniversary Celebration

Important announcement about the Tiniest Texans Anniversary Gala

Thank you for supporting the mission of Hand to Hold and the Tiniest Texans Anniversary Gala. Due to the current uncertainty and spike in cases of the coronavirus in our community, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our event previously rescheduled for October 16, 2020.

We will, however, be celebrating Hand to Hold’s 10th Anniversary through videos, stories, auctions, raffles and more during our
10th Anniversary Celebration Week, October 12 – 16, 2020.

As our community faces the challenges associated with COVID-19, we are so proud that Hand to Hold’s Family Support Specialists and trained volunteers are there to support NICU families who are faced with the fears and anxieties of having a medically fragile baby and the additional stress and concerns created by the virus. Your support is vital to ensure these families have a Hand to Hold during and after their NICU stay.

ACL Live at the Moody Theater will be reaching out to general admission and VIP ticket holders directly. If you have any immediate questions, please contact our Development Director, Kelly Perkins, at kperkins@handtohold.org. Thank you again for your support of the Tiniest Texans Gala. We look forward to celebrating with you during our 10th Anniversary Week, October 12 – 16, 2020. 

ONLINE: Monday, October 12 – Friday, October 16, 2020 

The 10th Anniversary Celebration will commemorate Hand to Hold’s 10th anniversary year with a week-long online campaign of celebration, honoring those who have made the past decade of success possible for Hand to Hold and those we serve.

Join event chairs Lana Macrum-Craig and Allie Alter and other prominent members of our business, healthcare and philanthropic communities, as we share stories, toast 10 years and raise awareness and much needed funding for programs supporting the tiniest fighters in our communities and their families. 


Thank you to our sponsors!
