It’s another beautiful week in the Rio Grande Valley!

I’ve seen a lot of Texas strangers help out strangers with items, food and help evacuating their houses. I know Hurricane Harvey as been on the news and everywhere, however I have seen some RGV heroes travel to Houston, Victoria, and Corpus Christi areas to help and I have to acknowledge them.  I’ve seen goodness and kindness from:  Sonia Garcia; Lenny Garza; Rick Venecia; Monty Awbrey; Joseph Lockhart; Patricia Brown; Steven Alaniz; Mike Gonzalez; Bethany Riethman; Maritza Alaniz; Corina Alaniz; Jorge Valdez; Christine Barrera; Steve Tanguma; melissa Lockhart; Charlie Garcia; Jeremiah Martin; Joe Swoboda; Juan Jimenez; Julian Gomez; Debbie Alvarez; Johnny Pena; Danny Vargas; Ray Soto; Monique Jeffrey; and many many others.  There are so many businesses and places helping out, please find out what is needed and then donate. 

The American Cancer Society’s Cattle Baron Ball’s, “Boots & Blossoms,” will be held this Saturday, September 9th at the Boggus Ford Events Center.  Clara Chapa, the new Community Devlopment Manager has been working diligently with her committee and Chairs to make this year’s event fun and successful.  Husband and wife super duos,Laura & Dr. Alberto Pena and Jessica & Drew Lentz are the 2017 Chairmen.  Andrea Sierra Salazar was diagnosed with stage 2 nodular schleoriss Hodgkin lymphoma in 2016 and will be the honoree this weekend.   Dinner will consist of beef tendorlein, pork belly, a pasta bar, cesar salad bar, truffle mac-n-cheese station, and many other delicious foods.  Like Red wine, white whine, or a good cabernet? Then make sure you participate in the wine pull. Who knows what you will get, but the chances of you leaving with an expensive bottle of wine, is very high.  Get your tickets ASAP before they sell out.  Contact the American Cancer Society office at (956)682-8329 to join in the fun for a great cause.

The Rio Grande Valley Hispanic Chamber of Commerce will host it’s Manic MondayMixer on September 11th, at Dave & Buster’s in McAllen at 5:30PM.  I’ll SEE You there! Meet me by Space Invaders for a challenge!!
