2019 Bid & Boogie Was a Success

As the pictures from our March 1, 2019 fundraiser, Bid and Boogie, so perfectly portray, a great time was had by all attendees.

We want to recognize Gandy, Ink for continuing to be our Presenting, Diamond Sponsor. The impact this great company has on the efforts of SASF is tremendous. We also want to recognize Lone Star Beef in their continued support of SASF. Both of these fine companies are a huge
reason the Grants to Teachers program will continue to help us bring innovative academic opportunities to the teachers and students of SAISD.

This was our first attempt at a new venue, House of Fifi DuBois, a new name, Bid and Boogie, a new night, live entertainment, Andrea Marie & the Magnolia Band, and even a new time. It was like stepping out into space! But our spacesuits were perfectly designed through much hard work from the board members, especially Elizabeth Chambers and Richele Boyd, our Fundraiser Chairs. We continued the tradition of our varied and unique Silent Auction and our Live Auction that introduced our guests to surprises closer to home as well as a Trophy Antelope hunt in New Mexico. The raffle this year was for a beautiful necklace and ring combo from Koll’s Diamond and Design in San Angelo. We appreciate Christine and Todd Kolls for their generosity in donating this stunning pair. We served delicious fajitas with all the trimmings and the food was top notch-we want to say a special thank you to Market Street for their donation and service. The desserts were fantastic as well. There was a wide variety of deliciousness and we thank HEB and Jade Reisner for this contribution. The band was out of Austin, Texas, and was excellent. They took requests (for monetary donations that all went to SASF) and didn’t miss a beat in thrilling our audience. We especially want to thank Toni with Fifi’s for her acceptance of taking this on with SASF and for her vision, wisdom, leadership, and willingness to make our event “One to remember!” in the most positive way. I can easily say a great time was had by all. It was THE place to be on March 1, 2019!

Please look through the pictures for friends you know that were there. Remember our wonderful and generous sponsors when you are out in San Angelo wondering where to go for your group’s t-shirts or who’s the best beef processor around or who you should call when you need a new roof, or a home loan, or a great doctor, or a delicious hamburger and fries, or a bank that listens and cares, and even a good attorney. Our sponsors are the Best at what they do. And even more importantly, they care about the education of our SAISD students and want to help us help those devoted teachers out there working to bring excellence to education – one student at a time!
