San Antonio Public Library Foundation’s Annual Catrina Ball

By Rob Giardinelli        Photography by Greg Harrison and Super Q Photography

THE SCENE: Recently, one of the top social events of the fall season happened that was unforgettable. A sold-out crowd of several hundred of the city’s social elite descended upon the San Antonio Public Library for the second annual Catrina Ball.

THE VIBE: The artful, black-tie crowd knew they were in for a magical evening as they walked up to the library doors while being serenaded by a live mariachi band. Once inside, the fun continued, as the modern space of the main library was transformed into a lavish event space where many patrons donned beautiful Dias de los Muertos themed face paintings and elaborate masks that perfectly accentuated the mood.

Rosemary’s Catering provided an elaborate spread that perfectly complimented the theme with highlights including Mayan couscous, Yucatan empanadas and a delectable Aztec mesquite cake for dessert. Water color caricature artists were also on hand to create keepsakes for patrons to remember this special experience.

After taking a moment to honor the evening chairs La Catrina AnaPaula Watson and El Catrin Rick Liberto, the fun moved upstairs for the Neiman Marcus DiscGlowTeca afterparty where guests danced the night away and toasted the success of an exquisite evening.

THE CAUSE:  The Catrina Ball, co-chaired by Heather de Rojas, Amy Garcia and Xitlalt Herrera-Salazar, raised essential funds for the Library’s Latino Collection and Resource Center’s future programming and outreach for the San Antonio Public Library Foundation. The mission of the organization is to strengthen the library and its services to the community.
