Our biggest, grandest fundraiser yet

Our biggest, grandest fundraiser yet

Many thanks to our generous sponsors for supporting our 2023 scholarship and awards gala, which was held on Aug. 5 at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts.

It was the 25th anniversary of the event, which benefits students studying journalism and communications in the San Antonio area.

This page will be updated soon with information about our 2024 gala as planning gets underway. 



For more than 35 years, the San Antonio Association of Hispanic Journalists has worked to improve diversity in newsrooms and in the communications industry so that they better reflect the communities we serve. For the past 24 years or so, the SAAHJ gala has become one of the premiere celebrations of the year for our nonprofit organization and for San Antonio’s media and communications professionals. If you’ve been in the journalism business in San Antonio within the last quarter century, chances are that you have been to one of our galas.

All proceeds from the SAAHJ Gala go toward SAAHJ's Scholarship Fund, which provides scholarships for San Antonio-based college students who are studying to become the next generation of journalists and communications professionals.


In accordance with tradition, SAAHJ celebrates scholarship recipients and awards the Henry Guerra Lifetime Achievement Award to a deserving journalist, the Community Service award to a local organization or person and the Corazón de Oro, a national award honoring an individual in the arts whose work or leadership has made an undeniable impact on Latinos.
