On Saturday, April 27, 2019, Stars Scholarship Fund’s community gathered to celebrate the 16th Annual Extravaganza in Corpus Christi, Texas.
On this evening, over 600 of the Coastal Bend community joined us for a live auction, dinner catered by Texas Roadhouse and a night of comedy featuring Colin Jost of SNL.
Stars Scholarship Fund is grateful to the business leaders, philanthropists, educators, and community members who attended. Our Corpus Extravaganza was a huge success, generating over $30,000 from our live auction and raising $200,000 for student scholarships from sponsorships.
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 $400,000+ in scholarships in 2019, after funds are matched by our partnering colleges and universities, such as the Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi, Texas A&M University – Kingsville and Del Mar College.
Our next Corpus Christi Extravaganza will be scheduled for Spring 2020
