The Valor y Sueños Luncheon is AVANCE-Austin’s largest annual fundraiser. Serving the Austin community since 1997, AVANCE’s mission is to unlock America’s potential by strengthening families in at-risk communities through effective parent-child education and support programs. Our programs assist Austin families in achieving long-term educational success and breaking the familial cycles of poverty. AVANCE hopes to build a future where children and parents advance to their full potential, transforming the communities in which we live!
This celebratory event raises funds essential to our high-impact work, which dramatically shifts school dropout and poverty cycle statistics. Guests should expect a lunch centered on meaningful conversation and inspirational storytelling.
