Check out these high-tech photoshop skills, y’all (thanks InstaStories stickers for having what I needed)! I’m literally laughing out loud at this photo, but I’m loving the reason behind it.
I’m soo thrilled to announce that I’ve been chosen to be a part of the 2018/19 Riverwalk Royal Court, and will be fundraising for the San Antonio Riverwalk Association to claim the title of Queen of the Riverwalk! It’s no secret that the minis and I love the Riverwalk, we’re downtown so much, that we might as well live there!
When I first moved to San Antonio in ’08, after living in Europe for the majority of my life, I was pretty depressed, the culture-shock was real! One thing that really helped me was to immerse myself in the amazing cultura of San Antonio; the art, the food, the traditions (like Fiesta!), much of which is all Riverwalk-centric. San Antonio is now our home, and I take pride in being able to promote this city.
From my bio on the Royalty page, “As a full-time single mom of 4, and entrepreneur, it’s always my goal to lead by example, for my children. Running for Queen of the Riverwalk and being able to fundraise for this amazing city that we call home, is doing just that!
Whether it’s volunteering for a shift at the San Antonio Food Bank with my 4 incredible kids in tow, opening up our home to foster animals through ACS, or serving as a Board Member for The Farm by Culinaria, I firmly believe in giving back to our community; it helps me to always lead with heart, and get a deep understanding of our city.
I love being able to promote San Antonio and it’s culturally-rich and vibrant downtown, through my award-winning blog, Champagne Taste Beer Budget. I also enjoy helping businesses expand and grow, and serving as a brand ambassador for countless local companies. I also enjoy helping business expand and grow through The Social Agency – a bespoke firm offering PR, marketing and social media, that I helped create a year ago with other strong, passionate San Antonio women, to showcase our diverse city.
I’m truly honored to be a part of the 2018/2019 Riverwalk Royal Court. Thank you, San Antonio, for the opportunity!”
If you’re not familiar with the Riverwalk Royalty program, it’s the Riverwalks largest fundraising platform. Each year 4 men and 4 women are chosen to be on court as representatives for the Riverwalk. Titles are bestowed according to who raises the most money in support of the Riverwalk; King & Queen, Prince & Princess, Duke & Duchess, Count & Countess.
It’s my pleasure to be able to use my voice to fundraise for the Riverwalk, and I hope I can count on your support with a donation to The Riverwalk Association, backing my run for Queen. 100% of proceeds go directly to the Riverwalk Association and all the work they do. Stay tuned for shopping parties, events, dinners, and more, all in partnership with some of my favorite locally-owned businesses, as I spend the next few months fundraising!
