On October 16, 2018, Stars
Scholarship Fund's community gathered to celebrate the 16th Annual Extravaganza
in Laredo, Texas.
On this evening, over 400 Laredoans
joined us for a live auction; dinner catered by the Laredo Country Club and a special
presentation by Sean Spicer.
Sean Spicer engaged guests
while speaking of his time as the White House Press Secretary and his journey
before and after. He graciously took questions from guests and we were honored
to have him as our speaker for the evening.
Stars Scholarship Fund is
grateful to the business leaders, philanthropists, educators, and community members who
attended. Our 2018 Laredo Extravaganza was a success, generating over $60,000
from our live auction and raising an additional $100,000 for student
scholarships from donations.
Every dollar friends
invested in Stars Scholarship Fund produces ripple effects in the community. As
a result of this one evening, Stars Scholarship Fund will be able to offer an
additional $200,000+ in scholarships in 2019, after funds are matched by our
partnering colleges and universities, such as Texas A&M International
University and Laredo College.
We have been blessed with 16
wonderful years in Laredo, with over $2.25 million dollars disbursed in Laredo
and over 1,200 students from Laredo receiving a Stars Scholarship to attend
Sissy De Los Reyes, a current
recipient of the Stars Scholarship and undergraduate student of Psychology at TAMIU,
was a featured speaker and spoke to guests on the impact receiving the Stars
Scholarship Fund had on her and her family. Because of you, students like Sissy
will be able to pay for their college education and have a better chance to
succeed in the future.
We are incredibly fortunate to have your help to close the gap between
dreams and opportunity for so many students. Thank you to everyone who
joined us and supported us! We hope you enjoyed the time spent with us.Meet and Greet 2018
