About Mission Road’s Annual Grand Western Shindig

Mission Road’s Grand Western Shindig is, at its heart, a family reunion. Shindig is recognized as among San Antonio’s most welcoming, casual and entertaining fundraisers. It is an annual gala event benefiting the children and adults served each day by Mission Road Ministries. The event attracts more than 700 guests who enjoy delicious catering; live music and dancing; silent and live auctions, raffle and other surprises. Our 45th Grand Western Shindig Gala will be hosted in person AND offered bidding in our online Auction for guests who enjoy participating at home. We are working to raise $1,000,000 again this year. Through your gift, you are making positive and meaningful improvements to the quality of life of some of our community’s most vulnerable people.

Mission Road Ministries cares for children and adults with IDD (intellectual developmental disabilities). The Grand Western Shindig helps to raise critical funding that helps bridge the gap between state and federal funding that allows for the minimum standard of care and the total funding required to provide the exceptional care our clients require and deserve to reach their greatest potential for Independence, Productivity and Inclusion in the community.
