El Paso Extravaganza
On October 10, 2018, Stars
Scholarship Fund's community gathered to celebrate the 6th Annual Extravaganza
in El Paso, Texas.On this evening, over 500 El
Pasoans joined us for a live auction; appetizers and dinner catered by Geske's
Fire Grill, casino games and entertainment by Felix and Fingers Dueling Pianos.
Stars Scholarship Fund is
grateful to the business leaders, philanthropists, educators, and community members who
attended. Our 2018 El Paso Extravaganza was a huge success, generating over
$25,000 from our live auction and raising an additional $210,000 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 $400,000+ in scholarships in 2019, 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 6
wonderful years in El Paso, with over $1.2 million dollars disbursed in El Paso
and over 600 students from El Paso receiving a Stars Scholarship to attend
Susana Portillo, a 5 year
recipient of the Stars Scholarship and Doctorate student of Philosophy at UTEP,
was a featured speaker and spoke to guests on the impact Stars Scholarship Fund
had on her obtaining an undergraduate degree in Microbiology from UTEP and the
importance of Stars Scholarship Fund offering scholarship opportunities to
graduate students. Because of you,
students will be able to pay for their college education and have a better
chance 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.
