On October 3, 2019, Stars Scholarship Fund’s community gathered to celebrate the 7th Annual Extravaganza in El Paso, Texas. On this evening, over 500 El Pasoans joined us for a live auction; appetizers and dinner and an amazing private concert by LANco.
Stars Scholarship Fund is grateful to the business leaders, philanthropists, educators, and community members who attended. Our 2019 El Paso Extravaganza was a huge success, generating over $34,000 from our live auction and raising an additional $190,000 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 $380,000+ in scholarships in 2020, after funds are matched by our partnering colleges and universities, such as The University of Texas at El Paso and El Paso Community College.
We have been blessed with 7 wonderful years in El Paso, with over $1.4 million dollars disbursed in El Paso and over 850 students from El Paso receiving a Stars Scholarship to attend college.
Perla Renteria, current Stars Scholarship Recipient and graduate student at UTEP was a featured speaker and spoke to guests on the impact Stars Scholarship Fund has on her life and her goals of obtaining her Master’s Degree in Higher Education Administration. Because of the support of our community, students like Perla have the support needed to succeed in the future.
We had fun. We raised funds. And we felt 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 delicious dinner in a beautiful space and had good conversations with friends old and new.
As businesses look at ways that they can give back to our community this year, we ask that they consider supporting the 7th Annual El Paso Extravaganza. When supporting Stars Scholarship Fund, 100% of sponsor donations will be applied to student scholarships, as our operating expenses are largely covered by L&F Distributors. In addition, our partnerships with Texas colleges and universities enable Stars Scholarship Fund to have sponsor donations matched, allowing our funds to have a greater impact in our community.
The Stars Extravaganza is a private event for sponsors of Stars Scholarship Fund. We offer six options of sponsorship starting at $3,000 for any organization, business or individual who would like to support us. Each table seats 10 and location of seating is determined by the level of commitment chosen. Stars Scholarship Fund provides supporters with year-round media exposure via our website, social media, print, radio and television.
