San Antonio Sports has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 San Antonio Sports Hall of Fame Tribute scheduled for Saturday, March 28, at the H.B. Gonzalez Convention Center.

Lynn Hickey, Stan E. Bonewitz, Mike Ayala, Brig. Gen. Robert McDermott and the 1972 Trinity University Men’s Tennis Team, who were scheduled to be inducted that evening, will instead be inducted next year on Feb. 27, 2021. 

The San Antonio Sports Hall of Fame Tribute is the largest fundraiser for San Antonio Sports’ free youth sports and community health initiatives. In addition to attracting more than 1,000 attendees, the event features an unparalleled auction. Many supporters have chosen to pledge their table purchases and sponsorships to help San Antonio Sports continue its work in our community.

Businesses and individuals have donated auction items in support of the event. San Antonio Sports will be hosting an online auction of sports memorabilia, unique experiences, gift cards, jewelry, vacations and more, with the proceeds benefiting our nonprofit organization. It will go live on March 19 and continue through April 3. A link to the online auction can be found at SanAntonioSports.org

When it comes to community, KENS cares!  KENS Cares and our sponsor Methodist Healthcare are committed to making a difference in our community.
