The Women’s Athletics Fundraisers (WAF) at The University of Texas-Pan American will host a “Let’s Go Disco” fundraiser Saturday, Oct. 20 to benefit UTPA women’s athletic programs and fifth year scholarships. The event, scheduled 7 p.m.-midnight, will be held at the UTPA Annex, 2412 S. Closner, Edinburg, which will be transformed into a ‘70s discotheque for the night. Guests can dance to the musical hits of the era spun by DJ Jesse Romero of Valley Vibe DJ Service and enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres including sushi, jumbo shrimp, pork and chicken skewers and more as well as an array of bite size desserts. Drinks will include sodas, water, beer and wine and a cash bar will also be available. A series of auctions – silent, blackboard and live – will provide guests an opportunity to bid on great gifts for the holidays or exciting trips and airline tickets. Casino venues will also add to the fun. Tickets to “Let’s Go Disco” are $35 per person with a UTPA ID and $50 per person for all others. UTPA is a nonprofit educational entity; the donation portion of the ticket price is tax-deductible. Pictured left to right with some of the items to be auctioned are UTPA staff and WAF Committee members Cathy Vale, S.J. Sethi, Susan Griffith and Lydia Flores. To purchase tickets, call 956/381-2383.
