The Grand Western Shindig Gala.

  • $750,000 Goal

We’re back! Mission Road’s Grand Western Shindig is recognized as among San Antonio’s most welcoming, casual and entertaining fundraisers 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 42nd Grand Western Shindig 2021 will be held in person with online hybrid options for guests who enjoy participating at home. Our goal again this year is to raise more than $750,000 for clients during this gala evening. Through your gift, you are making positive and meaningful improvements to the quality of life of some of our community’s most vulnerable people.

We are grateful to our thoughtful friends, Dorothy and Cory Basso, for accepting our invitation to serve as Chairmen of our 42nd Annual Grand Western Shindig. Dorothy is an Account Executive at Spectrum Reach. Cory is the owner and principal of CB 360 Consulting LLC and the former Group Vice President for Marketing & Advertising at H-E-B. They are the proud parents of three children and have a long history and legacy of supporting charities throughout San Antonio and the nation.

We are most grateful to you and all our friends across San Antonio, Texas and the nation who participate in Shindig year after year. You have always made our services possible, and we pray that you continue to choose to support the people in our care again this year.  We are once again offering sponsored table packages, underwriting opportunities, auction donation opportunities and volunteer opportunities.

Mission Road Ministries cares for more than 850 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.
