The Southwest Texas Junior College Friends and Alumni Network (FAN) has rescheduled its annual gala for next spring.
According to gala committee member and FAN treasurer Wade Carpenter, the gala, originally slated for Nov. 17, will be held on April 6 at the Uvalde County Fairplex Events Center.
"We hope to make the spring our permanent gala time," Carpenter said. "With the Palomino Fest and SWTJC Rodeo both in the fall, followed closely by the holiday season, it just makes more sense to schedule our gala in the spring."
Carpenter also noted that planners for the gala also want to recognize outgoing SWTJC President Dr. Ismael Sosa, Jr., at their annual event.
"We thought this would be give the community an opportunity to honor president Sosa for his service to SWTJC, so this year's event will be called the SWJTC FAN Gala and Farewell to President Sosa," Carpenter said.
The 2013 gala will include dinner and dancing, as well as a silent auction and tribute to the outgoing SWTJC president. Tickets will be $50 per person.
