Mario’s Banquet and Conference Center Get Directions

RIO GRANDE VALLEY, TX (February 18, 2010) -- IDEA Public Schools will host its Annual Gala and Auction, Friday, April 1, at 6 p.m. at Mario’s Banquet and Conference Center in Mission, Texas. The event will include a seated dinner, presentations by IDEA students and leaders, and a silent and live auction.

As a public charter school, IDEA Public Schools receives 20% less state and federal funds compared to traditional public schools. The Gala & Auction will help bridge the funding gap, which includes needed support for students’ college field lessons, facilities, and academic programs that prepare students for success in college and citizenship.
Five different sponsorship opportunities are available from $1,000 to $15,000. Sponsorship benefits include media ads, promotions, and dinner tables at the gala. The Gala Committee is also seeking donations for the auction, including merchandise, services, gift certificates, and complimentary tickets.
For more information on sponsorship opportunities and donating auction items, contact Felicia Ramirez, Director of Foundation Relations, at (956) 373-6753. For more information on IDEA Public Schools, visit
