APRIL 5: El Buen’s First Annual Spring Gala



1. Just look at those kids! The gala benefits the Early Childhood Development Center, which has been providing bilingual care to East Austin children for almost 30 years. It is certainly one of the longest-running and most successful early education programs in Central Texas.

2. The Mexican American Cultural Center.

Think you know Austin? If you haven’t visited the MACC yet, you don’t know the half of it. The gala is the perfect opportunity to see this gorgeous building and learn more about the classes, galleries, and history behind this superb Austin resource.

3. Endowment. According to the Las Comadres listserv, “The Center has recently been blessed with a generous donation to start an endowment fund and we invite you to help us raise $50,000 to match the donation. The endowment fund will be managed by the Austin Community Foundation for the benefit of El Buen Pastor Early Childhood Development Center.

The Fund has been established to ensure that the Center’s families who are unable to afford full tuition costs are provided scholarships long into the future. Currently, 75% of the children fall into the 2008 Federal Poverty Guidelines.”
