Houston Street Charities and San Antonio Cocktail Conference 2016 is proud to be donating 100% of profits from this year’s event to support children’s charities.
The Cocktail Conference was the first of its kind in Texas, but the concept is nothing new, there are various models across the country. What makes the SACC different from the rest is that 100% of the profits are divided among selected children’s charities. These funds are raised through ticket sales to a variety of events that range from elaborate cocktail parties to guided tastings and educational seminars.
The San Antonio Cocktail Conference is not just an opportunity to drink. It’s about learning the art and appreciation for the cocktail, while helping the children of our community. More than $355,000 has been donated in its first four years, and the San Antonio Cocktail Conference will continue to dedicate its profits to supporting children’s charities. Though the majority of our funding to charities comes from the Cocktail Conference, there may be, on occasion, an opportunity to meet other modest needs of individual charities and causes. The beneficiaries of San Antonio Cocktail Conference 2016 are ChildSafe, The Children’s Shelter, Clarity Child Guidance Center, TEAMability and Transplants for Children.
