Caballeros Cocktail Party*
February 17 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Celebrity guests, both national and international, join with state Governors, Congress members, and dignitaries to induct the newest members of the Caballeros de la República del Río Grande. Established in 1961, the Caballeros recognize and honor individuals who work to make each George Washington’s Birthday Celebration such a success. Comprised of Mr. South Texas honorees, former WBCA presidents and portrayers of George Washington, the group does more than promote the Washington’s Birthday events, it also works to encourage Laredo’s youth to pursue higher education. To this end, proceeds from the Caballeros Cocktail Party are distributed through a scholarship program to area high school students.
