Bury sponsored the 17th Annual Hairy Man Festival this year held in Cat Hollow Park in Round Rock. The family fun-centered event raises money for many local charities and offers a full day of food, arts & crafts, children’s activities, special performances, live music all day and, of course, a contest for the hairiest man. The festival is held annually by the Brushy Creek Women’s Association and the Brushy Creek MUD and often draws crowds of 5,000 or more.
Each year, the event committee chooses a primary charity in the area. This year, it was Project Care Case, an organization that provides new and age-appropriate suitcases on wheels to each child in foster care. The “Care Case” is a suitcase with the child’s name permanently embedded. It contains a child-friendly Bible, socks, underclothing, two changes of clothing, a teddy bear, and a pillow/blanket of their own. Read more about Project Care on their website.
The event also donated proceeds to two local food banks, the local utility assistance program, and several other local non-profit organizations. The event was a great success and certainly a way for folks to enjoy a community day and give back locally.
