Lo Bello de San Antonio Women’s Club was founded in 1993. Amelia Garza was the founder and first President. Our first donation in the amount of $2,000 was to Visitation House in 1995. Since then we have raised more than $800,000 that we have awarded in scholarships to UTSA, St. Phillips’s College, and Our Lady of the Lake University; as well as donations to the Texas Diabetes Institute, University Hospital, Sister’s Care, Big Brothers/Big Sisters of South Texas, Communities in Schools, Westside YMCA, Positive Beginnings, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Bexar County Family Justice Center, San Jose Mission, and the Smithsonian’s Museo Alameda. Although our membership consists of only 25 businesswomen, we work hard during our three annual fundraisers to achieve our goal of increasing educational opportunities in our community. It is in this vein that we, Lo Bello, Continue striving to make our community mas Bello!
