SAN ANTONIO - Every year one of the most anticipated reveals of Fiesta are the medals. We asked you to send us some of your medals and boy did San Antonio respond!
On Tuesday, we took a look at what SA Flavor has to offer.
El Corazon: This is the second Spurs inspired Loteria card since 2016—Tim Duncan was the heart of the Spurs and San Antonio so SA Flavor wanted to pay tribute to the greatest power forward of all time! One dollar of each purchase of this medal goes to CASA (Child Advocates of San Antonio).
Broken Heart: ¡Cómo me duele! Oh, how it still hurts that Timmy has retired! When neighbor and local lawyer David Evans heart about the El Corazon design, he wanted something to reflect the sadness of the event and came up with this design. It's really two separate medals, each $10, with $1 from each side going to benefit Sam Houston High School Youth and Government Mock Trial team where Evans volunteers.
Paleta Cart: SA Flavor’s favorite medal of 2017. Amanda Infante came to me with this idea and I think it just captures one of the favorite things about spring in San Antonio! One Dollar from each sale goes to benefit Girls Inc. San Antonio.
Taco Pacman: Designed by Tony Infante, this medal plays into something for nostalgic gamers. One dollar from each sale goes to Southwest Voter Registration and Education Project.
Fiesta Mariachi Dog: Designed by a 5th grader, Gaby Montelongo. One dollar from each sale benefits San Antonio Pets Alive.
Miss Margarita: Created by local blogger, Christina Liserio, this is the first of a series of food inspired medals for her. She chose margaritas because it's her current "research focus" and a dollar from every sale goes to benefit the nonprofit, The Chow Train, to help feed San Antonio’s homeless population.
Puro San Antonio: Remember the Memorial Day floods a couple of years ago? When did that guy take to the streets in a tube with a beer? That was #PuroSanAntonio! According to SA Flavor, Bren Muñoz, the woman behind the hilarious @PuroSanAntonio Twitter account, made this medal to commemorate the event. One dollar from every sale goes to the SA Humane Society!
All medals coast about ten dollars and can be purchased at saflavormedals.com.
