Dell Children's Circle of Friends
"After my son’s hospitalization, I felt completely indebted and wanted a tangible way to give back to other families in need at Dell Children’s. Being a part of the Hill Country Circle of Friends chapter is something I can do in return that really makes a difference."
– Michele Dishongh, Hill Country Circle of Friends
Dell Children's Circle of Friends is a network of regional support groups in Central Texas that raise awareness and funds for Children's Medical Center Foundation of Central Texas to benefit Dell Children’s. Each chapter is committed to continued support through grassroots fundraising activities throughout the year. Join an existing chapter or start a new chapter in your community.
The program began in 1996 in the Round Rock community and has since grown to include the following active chapters: Central Austin, Georgetown, Northwest Austin, Pflugerville, Round Rock, Uptown and Austin Metropolitan. To date, the chapters have raised over 2.5 million dollars and continue to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars each year to benefit Dell Children's Medical Center of Central Texas.
We invite you to join hands in our efforts to keep the children of Central Texas healthy and strong. Become a Friend of a local Circle of Friends chapter. Meet new friends and have fun for a good cause!
Each chapter has monthly meetings (September through May) and hosts 1-2 fund raising events annually. All Friends are required to make an annual gift. There are also exclusive sponsorship levels for specific events hosted by each chapter throughout the year.
If you'd like to start a chapter in your area, learn more about sponsorship opportunities or are interested in becomming a Circle of Friends Partner, please contact Rita Willoughby at the Children's Medical Center Foundation of Central Texas office at (512) 324-0192 or by email at
