A Transformational Evening
I’m always amazed at the transformation of the Alamodome for our annual gala: the San Antonio Sports Hall of Fame Tribute (see story below). The dome becomes an elegant, spacious venue housing an event that raises vital funds for our youth initiatives. Live auction items this year include a golf car autographed by the San Antonio Spurs team, a three-day hunt in Kerrville at the beautiful NuStar Lodge, and a VIP ticket package to the U.S. Grand Prix race in Austin. Please join us and witness first-hand the transformational power of sport. Get your tickets today!
