During the 11 days of Fiesta® San Antonio, more than 75,000 volunteers representing 100 local non-profit organizations produce over 100 events. The resulting economic impact exceeds $284 million for our city.
Since moving to Texas, we continue to meet extraordinary people who serve as a constant reminder why we call San Antonio our home. Giving back to the community is among the many qualities that make this city so endearing to us, and we continue our tradition of fundraising during Fiesta® as our way of giving back to the community we adore so much.
Our inspiration for Project Fiesta came in 2008 when a dear friend of ours passed away from Lymphoma. During Fiesta® 2009, we decided to design a T-shirt in remembrance and solidarity for all the lives he had touched. All of the proceeds were donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society here locally in San Antonio. After seeing the huge success of this project and the kind generosity of all involved, we knew we could make a difference for a deserving local charity every year. Each year we continue to grow and pass along the same spirit that started this project many years ago.
