Mariachi and Martinis at the Waco Suspension Bridge

Join us to honor the successes of our families at the 4th Annual AVANCE Extravaganza and Quinceañera gala. The theme of this year’s premier fundraiser is Mariachi and Martinis and will be held on the beautiful landmark Waco Suspension Bridge on October 6, 2016. The event will showcase the amazing work of AVANCE while highlighting some of the traditions involved with a Quinceanera. This year the incredible backdrop of the river and bridge should add to the excitement of this one-of-a-kind event. Last year’s event was a huge success, with a sell-out crowd of over 400.

AVANCE supporters and champions in the Waco community are also invited to participate in this event through sponsorship. By sponsoring the Extravaganza, you are participating in a multicultural event that highlights some of the incredible traditions of our community while helping to raise funds for the AVANCE Programs.
