I hope that you are able to support this Hope for the Future event by donation of silent auction items, personal or professional donation/sponsorship, by spreading the word to friends, and or by attending the 2019 Khaki & Plaid Royal Ball on Saturday Jan. 26, 2019 at the Henry B. Gonzales Convention Center.
Last year, this event raised close to $1,000,000, all of which went to provide need-based tuition assistance for Catholic and non-Catholic families or to provide assistance to the Catholic schools in the San Antonio area.
This year Hope for the Future assisted more than 2,000 families with more than 2.3 million dollars in tuition assistance.
If you are not familiar with the mission of Hope for the Future, they serve any family in San Antonio and the outlying communities who seek a faith-filled and rigorously academic education for their child or children at one of the 38 Archdiocese of San Antonio Catholic schools.
The tuition assistance enables many families who desire Catholic education for their children the hope for a brighter future. These families who, despite great sacrifice, need some help to send their children to an Archdiocese of San Antonio Catholic school. The median family income for the recipients of tuition assistance is $38,000.
In addition to providing tuition assistance, Hope for the Future also provides direct support to the schools in SA diocese, I encourage you to visit their web site: www. hopeforfuture.org for more information about their mission.
Generations of families throughout the Archdiocese of San Antonio have turned to Catholic schools to provide the academic and spiritual benefits of a Catholic school education. The days are long past when Catholic schools were led and taught primarily by nuns. Catholic schools compete with public, private and charter schools in academics and 21st century skills, but excel in the ability to promote social and moral behavior.
Catholic schools lay the foundation of faith with knowledge that will serve a child for their lifetime.
The legacy of Catholic schools is the formation of successful, involved, moral people with a tradition of service to others and community responsibility.
Finally, please let me know if you have any questions or need anything.
It is a great honor and privilege
Tex (& Denise)
