The Volunteer Services Council (VSC) has two major fundraising events to enrich the lives of patients receiving treatment at the Austin State Hospital.

ASH Dash 5K Bunny Run – April 4, 2015

Follow the Easter Bunny as you run, race or walk for mental health. Stay for the Easter egg hunt immediately following the race for all participants.  The annual ASH Dash 5K Bunny Run is a fun, easy way to help children and adults.
Registration open for the 10th annual event. All proceeds will assist the VSC in continuing to provide important programs and services to supplement treatment at the Austin State Hospital.


VISIONS of ASH – May 6, 2015
The VISIONS of ASH – Insights Art Show & Auction is an entertaining, artistic, and thought-provoking way to spotlight the works of our talented patients as well as raising funds through the sale of art donated by some of the region’s highly respected professional artists.  Art therapy is vital to a patient’s recovery giving them an opportunity to express themselves through creativity.
