Several Austin employee-owners spent their weekend helping build playhouses which will be on display at the 2015 Parade of Playhouses, all in the name of helping abused and neglected children.

Nonprofit organization Dallas CASA, which aims to give a voice to abused and neglected children and find them a permanent and safe home, led the charge to build the playhouses. The structures will then be a part of the Parade of Playhouses event, which raises funds to benefit these children.

Austin Commercial Vice President Steve Penson was a member of the panel of design judges for Dallas CASA, and  Austin volunteered to build one of the winning designs. Employee-owners who took part in the building included Tyler Berns, Taylor Brown, Ryan Garcia, Sindhu Gundimeda, Brett Krause and Kevin Yu.

Thanks to those who took part and donated their time to this great cause, and for being a great Austin representative for community engagement!
