About the 6th Annual Cactus Blossom
This last year, the inherent resiliency of our community was clearly on display. Friends like you found ways to adapt to protect the lives of our most vulnerable. Without neighbors checking in on each other, resurrected family recipes for immune boosting, and creative problem solving, we wouldn't have gotten this far. We see again that through community collaborative efforts we can accomplish anything. This is what we mean when we celebrate the Cactus Blossom: that despite every adversity we will still find a way to bloom and give life.
Due to the pandemic, AIT-SCM will host our first curbside fundraiser on July 17th: The Cactus Blossom Mission Heritage Dinner will happen this year- but virtually! Limited tickets will be available to our 4-course menu, an irresistible experience crafted by Chef Rebel Mariposa. As owner of the famed La Botanica, her exploration of Indigenous ingredients and techniques expanded and enticed palettes across San Antonio.
Funds raised through the 6th Annual Cactus Blossom Dinner support our many programs and services that strengthen San Antonio through cultural preservation and advocacy
