The 7th annual San Angelo Schools Foundation fundraiser, Sip. Savor. Support Students. is now ‘in the books’! The event was not only successful, but beautiful and entertaining and had great food and plenty of drinks. The nearly 300 people who attended had a wonderful time with our legendary “Heads and Tails” game, the raffle for a gorgeous diamond necklace and a most popular Silent Auction. The Live Auction items included 2 hunts, an original art piece, a trip to the wine country of California, an original Concho Pearl pendant, a fishing trip and tickets to a Jerry Jeff Walker concert that included an acoustic guitar signed by many Country Western artists. There was certainly something for everyone! We also incorporated the talents of Ballet Azteca and the Lake View Mariachi. These two organizations brought to our stage amazingly beautiful talent!
All this fun resulted in nearly $60,000! The majority of this money will go into our Grants to Teachers fund which gives teachers money to fulfill projects that engage and excite their students. November 2017, SASF gave over $54,000 to teachers for grant projects.
We want to thank all the sponsors that helped us make this money. Their names are listed under the section “Fundraising.” This special event would not have happened without the generosity and thoughtfulness of these gracious San Angelo people. We appreciate all they do in supporting San Angelo Schools Foundation’s mission of advocating and supporting innovative academic opportunities for all students of SAISD.

Along with our board members, I want to thank everyone who helped with bringing this event together, especially SASF’s Fundraising Co-Chairs, Elizabeth Chambers and Kendal Jastrow. Together they put in hours upon hours of organizing and planning and then executing this fundraiser. Their efforts paid off not only in a beautiful and fun evening, but also in a successful one. The teachers and students of SAISD will benefit the most from their tireless efforts.
