Enjoy a unique, intimate, joyous evening under the stars that will include dinner, drinks, live music, silent and live auctions.

We ask you to open your hearts and come out to support children with life-limiting illnesses and at end of life.

The Abigail E. Keller Foundation provides resources and support to medically fragile/complex and terminally ill children and their families.

Funds raised go to funding our programs and towards the goal of opening the first pediatric respite/hospice care facility in Texas.


Today the Ladies of Charity-Lake Travis presented the Abigail E. Keller Foundation with a $10,000 grant. This money will go to providing family care bags to pediatric hospice patients and their families. We continue to work hard at helping children through their life limiting conditions and end of life journeys. We are proud to be working with the Dell Children’s At Home pediatric hospice program and supporting these families.

We appreciate the Ladies of Charity for all your support and look forward to this new partnership.

Once upon a time there was a princess, Abigail Elizabeth Keller, a little girl with a big name, her birth on July 25, 2007 was one of the happiest days of her parents lives. Her parents like to think that Abigail knew of the journey she would take them on by the smile she had on her face as they rode down the hospital elevator to take her home.

One night as she rode in the car with her parents she would get upset and then smile for no reason until Momma realized that it was every time that they left the glow of the overhead street lights, their blind little girl didn’t like the dark! Early on as her Dada held her in his arms, during one of the hospitalizations, they were both covered in vomit but she looked up at him and smiled. Countless were the times when she laughed and played despite being in the hospital, amazing all who saw. Who else, but Abbey, could get discharged straight out of the intensive care unit to go home? And because of her illness her parents met the wonderful doctors and nurses whom without Abbey they would never have known. Abigail educated her parents of the world, that is special needs parenting, and were made better because of it. She spent half her life in the hospital or in clinics. Read more…
