Valor y Sueños Luncheon 2017 benefiting AVANCE-Austin

Sponsorship Opportunities Available

The Valor y Sueños Luncheon is AVANCE-Austin’s largest annual fundraiser. Serving the Austin community since 1997, AVANCE’s mission is to unlock America’s potential by strengthening families in at-risk communities through effective parent-child education and support programs. Our programs assist Austin families in achieving long-term educational success and breaking the familial cycles of poverty. AVANCE hopes to build a future where children and parents advance to their full potential, transforming the communities in which we live.

This celebratory event raises funds essential to our high-impact work, which dramatically shifts school dropout and poverty cycle statistics. Guests should expect a lunch centered on meaningful conversation and inspirational storytelling.  

WHO: AVANCE-Austin with Joy Diaz, Master of Ceremonies
WHEN: Wednesday, November 1, 2017, 11:30am – 1:00pm
WHERE: JW Marriott Hotel
WHAT: Enjoy your lunch alongside features such as a mariachi band, raffle items, and more
WHY: Your attendance at this event is extremely valuable: every ONE dollar spent on a child from age 0-3 saves the community up to $17 in later societal costs!
