SAN ANTONIO - Mark your calendars for the biggest and best gala in town. The Construct A Kid’s Christmas Gala is scheduled for Dec. 5 at Expo Hall C at the Freeman Coliseum. In less than just three short months, it will be time to hit the stores in search of the perfect gift. Keep the Construct A Kid’s Gala and annual toy drive in mind.




    From 2018 Gala, $45,000 was donated to the Friends of the Bexar County Child Welfare Board and $20,000 to CASA from Gala proceeds. This brings the total cash donations to $830,000 since the Gala began.
    Another way to help is with donations, which are needed for the silent and live auctions, including but not limited to: hunting and fishing trips, golf packages, vacation packages, spa packages, sports tickets, construction tools, jewelry, and art.
    For the past 18 years, hundreds of members from the construction industry have banded together to help the Bexar County Welfare Board make its foster children’s Christmas dreams a reality through the Gala and toy drive.
    Additionally, the Gala is a fun, cost-effective company Christmas party, too. This year, the evening will have a sweet candy cane Christmas theme with full buffet, live music, dancing, casino games, raffle prizes, auctions and the famous Grand Gala Raffle.
    Early registration/payment pricing for sponsorship is: Diamond $2,750, Corporate $1,750, Gold $600, Program $275. A table for 10 is $800, and individual tickets are $90 each. Early registration prices are only available until 10/31/19. Also available are $1000 beverage and $1000 casino sponsorships.   
    Unwrapped toys are collected at the Gala and the next day, Friday, Dec. 6, at the toy drive at the Construction News office. Last year, toy donations from the two events totaled 1,889.
    Trade associations participating in this year’s Gala are the American Subcontractors Association (ASA), Associated Builders & Contractors (ABC), Associated General Contractors (AGC), Black Contractors Association (BCA), Construction Financial Management Association (CFMA), Hispanic Contractors Association de San Antonio (HCA de SA), Mechanical Contractors Association Sheet Metal & A/C National Association (MCA-SMACNA), National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC), Plumbing Heating Cooling Contractors (PHCC), the Surety Association of South Texas (SAST) and Texas Air Conditioning Contractors of America (TACCA). –cmw
