San Anto Cultural Arts Announces 2010 Huevos Rancheros Gala

San Anto Cultural Arts is proud to ask you to Save the Date for the 13th Annual Huevos Rancheros Gala and Silent Art Auction on October 2, 2010 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Plaza Guadalupe (1327 Guadalupe Street). The Huevos Gala is the organization’s largest annual fundraiser, and San Anto Cultural Arts is currently seeking sponsors for the event.

Table sponsor levels are: $10,000 $5,000, $2,500, $1,000 & $500. All sponsors will be listed on the invitations and signage for the event and will be mentioned in all material released to the press. Other benefits of sponsorship include commemorative Low Rider bike art installed at your home/place of business (for the $10,000 level only), complimentary mural tours, and official San Anto Cultural Arts merchandise.Confirmed sponsors for the 2010 event include: Broadway Bank, CPS Energy, Escamilla, Poneck & Cruz, LLP, Frost Bank, Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities, Valero Energy Foundation, H-E-B, Methodist Healthcare Ministries, and The John and Florence Newman Foundation. Funds raised from this event will go directly to support San Anto Cultural Arts’ upcoming move to 2120 El Paso Street, in addition to the programs and the many other community initiatives offered year-round by the organization.
Each year the gala honors the King and Queen Huevo (Spanish for egg) of San Antonio-- two individuals who are chosen for their contributions to the artistic and cultural vibrancy of our city. This year’s King Huevo is Santiago Garcia of Westside Development Corporation and longtime arts supporter and advocate, and Queen Huevo is Megan Kromer, an award-winning non-profit consultant and of the Kronkosky Foundation.
The event will also feature great entertainment by Suzy Bravo & The Soul Revue featuring Frank Rodarte, breakfast catered by Estela’s Mexican Restaurant, and outstanding artwork from local artists. Artists that have contributed to the Silent Art Auction in the past include Cruz Ortiz, Alex Rubio, Margarita Cabrera, Kendra Curry, Kimberly Aubuchon, Peter Zubiate, and Vincent Valdez, among others.

Last year’s gala honored the organization’s late co-founder and Executive Director Manuel “Manny” Castillo as King Huevo and his mother, Rafaela Castillo, as Queen Huevo. The 2009 event brought together over 500 people and raised over $30,000 for San Anto programs.
