The Austin Originals Benefit Concert (AOBC) is Austin Child Guidance Center’s annual fundraising gala at ACL Live at the Moody Theater to be held this year on August 24, 2019.  Each year, the event brings together community supporters, local businesses, musicians, and mental health advocates to raise money for children’s mental health services and concludes with a concert.

The event also features live and silent auctions; the Austin Originals Tasting Grove with food bites from local Austin favorites; a VIP reception with exclusive musical performances before the show starts; and the annual Phyllis Richards Austin Icon for Children Award that honors persons making exemplary strides in improving outcomes for children. Currently, we are accepting nominations now through April 10, 2019.  For more information about the award or to submit your nomination, please visit our Phyllis Richards Austin Icon for Children Award page.

With your help, each year the Austin Originals Benefit Concert raises thousands of dollars in support of children’s mental health.
