Park with a Heart: Austin Cosmo Rotary Club Joins Austin University Area Rotary Club’s UT Gameday Parking Program

Fall is right around the corner, which means UT football time! This football season, Austin Cosmo Rotary Club will join the Austin University Area Rotary Club’s Park with a Heart program. Austin University Area Rotary Club has four parking lots available just 3 blocks north of DKR Stadium near E. Dean Keeton St and Medical Arts Parkway. Lots open 3 hours before game time. All funds raised via the program will go towards ACRC’s service projects to help make a larger impact in our community and world!

Join the parking crew!
