We are officially less than two weeks out from our 2019 Annual Gala, and you are cordially invited to the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center on Thursday, December 5, for a magical night of celebration and recognition of the people and values that have kept us advocating for San Antonio’s business community since 1894. Now is the time to make plans to reserve your place and add your business to our esteemed list of sponsors.
