The 11th Annual “Steak” In Your Community fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Edinburg RGV will feature television personality Mario Lopez as the host. The event will take place Saturday, January 13, at the Boys and Girls Club of Edinburg RGV, at 702 Cullen Street, Edinburg.
“The gymnasium will be transformed into cowboy heaven, so pull on your best jeans, throw on your hat, step into your boots, get here by any means and Cowboy Up For Kids, Buckaroo!” Marissa Castañeda, Honorary Chair and Chief Operations Officer, Senior Executive Vice President at Doctors Hospital at Renaissance, said in inviting businesses and the community to join in the annual fundraising event.
“An expected five hundred business and civic leaders will be having some fun mixin’ and some fixin’s as we kick up our heels because we are making a big deal for our special guest, television host and actor, Mario Lopez,” Castaneda added.”
Host of “ExtraTV” and the nationally syndicated radio show ‘On With Mario,’ Mario Lopez Jr. has appeared on several television series, in films, and on Broadway. He is known for his portrayal of A.C. Slater on “Saved by the Bell,” whom he also portrayed as a regular on “Saved by the Bell: The College Years.” He has appeared in numerous projects since, including the third season of Dancing with the Stars. He has also hosted America’s Best Dance Crew for MTV. In 2012, he co-hosted the second season of American version of The X Factor with Khloé Kardashian-Odom, and was the sole host for the third and final season.
The Youth of the Year will be named at this event. Most importantly, the evening will raise much-needed funds through the live auctions, bonanza boards, treasure trough and Save-the-Date Card Raffle to support the academic success, healthy life-styles, and character and civic engagement programs.
