The community is invited to join alumni from SAISD’s Fox Tech and Lanier high schools for an evening of festivities including auctions, dinner and dancing. Masters of ceremony will be former State Board of Education member Dr. Joe Bernal and University of Texas at San Antonio President Dr. Ricardo Romo, graduates of Lanier and Fox Tech, respectively. Proceeds will be used to establish scholarships for their alma maters, and to benefit Tech’s new Health Professions Magnet Program. The gala – intended to be an annual event – was established to keep alive the spirit of the beloved Chili Bowl. This 67-year football rivalry ended in 2009 as part of Tech’s transitions into a stand-alone Magnet high school. In addition to Health Professions, the school also has the established Law and Research Magnet. Tickets are $30 per person. For more information visit www.chilibowl.org.
