Raquel for 2020 Fiesta Especial Queen

I'm running for the 2020 Queen position on the Fiesta Especial  Royal Court and I NEED YOUR HELP! 

I'm running to make a difference in my local community for individuals with disabilities.  My campaign runs from September 7th through December 6th.  Your donation to my campaign will help me to demonstrate how individuals with disabilities can successfully hold positions of leadership and contribute to the San Antonio community. 

$1.00 = 1 Vote

Each one of your dollars donated to my campaign helps move me one step closer to being QUEEN!!!  

Being a member of the Fiesta Especial Royal Court, I will experience unique opportunities to 
*  participate in a program that develops leadership and life skills,
*  be in a position of leadership and role modeling to his peers,
*  interact with dignitaries, 
*  participate in TV interviews, 
*  visit schools and organizations to increase awareness for individuals with disabilities.  

During my reign, I will represent the community of individuals with disabilities during one of the most celebrated times of the year in San Antonio... Fiesta.  Fiesta is San Antonio's biggest "Party with a Purpose."  It is a time when the city celebrates its history, culture and vast diversity. 

HOW MY CAMPAIGN SUPPORTS OR COMMUNITY: 
I have selected Family Service to benefit from 40% of my campaign this year.  This organization empowers individuals and families to transform their lives and strengthen their community and is the oldest human service nonprofit in San Antonio.  My campaign will specifically support their senior and disability services.

The other 60% will go to help underwrite the costs of special education classes in and around San Antonio to attend Fiesta Especial® Celebration Day, a one-day community instruction program during Fiesta®. 100% of each donation goes to help individuals with disabilities in our community.  Bonus! Each gift is eligible for a tax deduction.

The Fiesta Especial® Royal Court is a leadership and life skills development program provides a unique, fun and exciting environment for individuals to work on communication, socialization, leadership, self-advocating, problem solving and planning skill sets.
